Organization for the Independence of Palestine


July 5, 2022

The Organization for the Liberation of Palestine (Arabic: منظمة التحرير الفلسطينية, Munazzamat al-Tahrir al-Filastiniyyah or Munazzamat al-Tahrir al-Filastiniyyah; English: Palestine Liberation Organization or PLO; Spanish: Organización para la Liberación) confederation party viewed since 1974 as “the only true representative of the Palestinian people”. The PLO was founded by the Arab League in May 1964, under the chairmanship of Ahmad Shuqeiri, a Palestinian with an experienced diplomat. The original “PLO Charter” declared the establishment of Israel “illegal, and untrue” and wanted to “liberate the homeland” through armed struggle.
