BLACK SEPTEMBER, THE PALESTINIAN TEAR
Events that shaped the countries of the Mediterranean
An episode from the series ECHOES OF HISTORY
Behind the bloody episode of Black September, that fatal month of 1970 which ended with the brutal repression and expulsion of the Fedayeen from the Kingdom of Jordan, lies a major tear in the Palestinian camp.
It was a duel to the death between the two souls of the Resistance: the nationalists of Fatah, guided by their emblematic leader Yasser Arafat, and the extremists of the National Front for the Liberation of Palestine of George Habash.
In a tense international context, the latter forces the hand of the entire Resistance, leading to the Jordanian bloodshed.
