History and profile
Al Hadaf was founded in Beirut in 1969 by Ghassan Kanafani as the political mouthpiece of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), espousing a Marxist-Leninist version of pan-Arab Palestinian nationalism. Kanafani also served as the editor-in-chief of the weekly. In 1972, Kanafani was killed by a car bomb, but Al Hadaf remains in publication. The magazine is based in Beirut.
