Reem al-Nimer

Reem al-Nimer is a Palestinian activist and the widow of Abu al-Abbas, the iconic leader of the Palestine Liberation Front (PLF). Hailing from landed Palestinian notability, she grew up in Beirut, where she joined Yasser Arafat's Fatah Movement. Her marriage to Abu al-Abbas took her to Tunis, Damascus, Libya, and Baghdad, the city where she first met her husband in 1975 and last saw him shortly before the US invasion in 2003. Abu al-Abbas died in US custody in March, 2004.
