Israeli Map Shows "Terror Network" in Damascus

(Reuters) - Israeli authorities on Tuesday released a map pinpointing what it said were homes and offices of Palestinian militant leaders in Damascus, illustrating the extent of the "Terror Network in the Damascus Region." The map shows supposed locations of the homes of senior Hamas leaders Mousa Abu Marzook and Khaled Mashal, Islamic Jihad leader Ramadan Shallah and Ahmed Jibril, chief of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC). It also shows 10 sites in Damascus that are the political, military, and media offices for Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Fatah, and the PFLP-GC. "The map is proof of the extensive presence of Palestinian terror groups in Syria," an Israeli security source said. "Everyone that is involved in terror and endangers the lives of Israeli citizens is not immune."
