The PLO fighters not only attacked Israel in the “Land of Persecution”, they also intended to overthrow King Hussein of Jordan (they tried to kill him twice), considering him an ally of imperialism. The actions of the PLO created international complications for the King because hijacked planes were consecutively directed to Jordan by the Palestinians (1970). The hijackings of Dawson’s Field were three aircraft forced to land on Zerqa, their passengers were taken as hostages and the equipment was detonated on the field, before the international press. Hussein saw this event as the last straw and ordered his army to move forward. On Sep/9/1970, Jordan began to bomb the Palestinian refugee camps. The Fedayeen were expelled one by one, until the last group of 2,000 Palestinian fighters surrendered when rounded up in a forest near Ajloun, on July/17/1971, thus ending the conflict. The Black September Organization was created during the conflict to retaliate. The group took responsibility for the murder of the Jordanian Prime Minister, Wasfi Al-Tal (1971), and the murder of 11 Israeli athletes participating in the 1972 Olympic Games of Munich. The number of Palestinians deceased was estimated by the Jordanians in 2,500, while Yasser Arafat estimated 3,400 deceased and 10,800 wounded. Israel estimated a higher amount: about 20,000. The Hashemite Dynasty ensured its rule over Jordan, while the Palestinian terrorists found a new place for their activities: Lebanon. The Jordanian forces reported 537 losses among their members. After creating an institutional void and anarchy in Jordan, the PLO continued to do the same thing in Lebanon, participating in the civil war against the Maronite Christians. They stayed there until 1982.
