Canada outlaws 3 more Palestinian terror groups
Canada added three high-profile Palestinian groups to its list of banned terrorist organizations Thursday.
The Palestine Liberation Front, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the PFLP-General Command all “knowingly engaged in terrorist activity,” Solicitor General Wayne Easter said in a news release.
The new listings increased to 34 the total number of organizations banned under Canada’s Anti-Terrorism Act, which was passed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States.
It’s promising news to finally see Canada stepping up to the plate.
