A security source told The Daily Star that the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command has recently fortified its military posts over a 14-kilometer-stretch of the Lebanese border in the Bekaa Valley, in coordination with Hezbollah and Syrian military figures.The sources said that a new leadership for the PFLP-GC had been appointed and tasked with supervising military operations and deploying Palestinian fighters at their bases in Qousaya, Deir al-Ghazzal, Bayyad and Deir Znoun.The fighters are reportedly equipped with various medium and light weapons as well as anti-aircraft weaponry, while in the post of Jabal al-Muaysira, PFLP-GC personnel are said to be armed with tanks and rocket launchers, and are connected to Syria by way of a paved road. Eight Hezbollah fighters were killed when fighters from the Nusra Front attacked party military posts on the outskirts of the Baalbek village of Brital earlier this month.
