A Palestinian Liberation Organization faction said Thursday it would not attend a meeting of the most important Palestinian political congress in years, because it wants more factions to be included. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said it will boycott the rare Palestinian National Council session, after a call to allow such factions as Hamas and the Islamic Jihad to attend was not granted, the group said in a statement issued in Cairo Thursday.The PFLP is the second-largest PLO faction after Fatah, the group headed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who also heads the PLO. The PNC last met in 2009 in what was termed an emergency session.
