Hello everyone, I recently pick up this medal offline and I was wondering anyone happen to know how it is and what it is for?

I am grateful for any help that anyone could give, I know next to nothing about Palestinian awards and insignia.

Dear Lion,

The obverse reads, "Palestine Liberation Front - Freedom Force".

The PLF was formed in the early 1960's by Ahmed Jibril, a Palestinian former Captain in the Syrian Army.

Later, in 1967, the PLF became one of the constituent parts of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - PFLP.

Regards,

Owain

Dear Lion,

I have one of these medals - it came with a black, red, black, ribbon - whether this was original I do not know.

The Saudi have only ever issued once commemorative war medal and that was for the Liberation of Kuwait.

Regards,

Owain
