TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 4): CHARRAR: "It's well known that the PLO is not only against such operations but also the PLO condemn it. We are freedom fighters. We don't accept such cruel type of operations because we are fighting our enemy in our occupied territories. What happened yesterday at Orly was done by persons who were supported by foreign hands. They are against us, and they are doing their best to do harm to our justice codes. So I consider..... we are doing everytime our best to support the others to stop such cruel action."
