Report: Palestinian Group Carried Out Lockerbie Bombing – David Horovitz (Times of Israel)
25 years after Pan Am Flight 103 was blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland, with the loss of all 259 passengers and crew and 11 people on the ground, a former senior member of the Israeli security establishment said he was certain the bombing was carried out by Ahmed Jibril’s Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command.
The Israeli source said Israel was “listening in” during the months prior to the December 21, 1988, bombing on preparations for what “we thought was a plan to target an Israeli plane” and that it was “clear that Jibril prepared the operation.”
He said there was a “huge alert” in the Israeli security establishment in the months before the bombing, because of indications that the PFLP-GC was about to strike.
“We told the British and the Americans what we knew….We didn’t warn about a British or an American plane because we didn’t know that.”
The Israeli source did not dispute that Col. Muammar Gaddafi’s Libya had commissioned the attack.
