Syria and Palestinian Terrorist Groups:
Syria has also provided safe haven for any number of militant groups since the 1960s, primarily Palestinian groups. In the 1960s, these secular groups weren't thought of as terrorist groups as they are today, but rather as guerrilla groups who carried out armed attacks on Israeli territory in the immediate wake of the division of Israel/ Palestine. Newer groups given safe haven by Syria, like Palestinian Islamic Jihad, are likely to be Islamist, rather than secular, in orientation.
Groups the US knows or accuses of taking haven, funding or other support from Damascus include:
Palestinian Islamic Jihad
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine
