May 23, 1986

The State Department released a statement calling on Syria to expel all terrorists--including Abu Nidal's Revolutionary Council of Fatah--from its territory. The statement, said to have approved at the highest levels of the department, said, "As long as Syria permits terrorists to move freely within Syria and those parts of Lebanon it controls, our serious concern remains." Abu Nidal's group, a splinter faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization, has an office in Damascus, Syria. It has claimed responsibility for last December's attacks on the Rome and Vienna airports that left 20 people dead.
