Report on Palestinian Terrorism

Since being expelled from Lebanon in 1982, the Palestine Liberation Organization and other Palestinian terrorist groups have carried out terrorist actions throughout the world on an average of once a week, according to the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith.

The ADL today issued a research report, “PLO and Palestinian-Inspired Terrorism, 1982-1985: The Continuing Record of Violence,” which cites and describes terrorist incidents and victims since the 1982 expulsion of the PLO from Lebanon to the hijacking of an Egyptair plane to Malta last month.

According to the report, in the past three years, the PLO has carried out attacks worldwide, including incidents in Ankara, Athens, Bangkok, Bogota, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Frankfurt, Hamburg, London, Madrid, Marseilles, Milan, New Delhi, Nicosia, Paris, Quito, Rome and Vienna.
