The Palestinian National Salvation Front (Arabic: جبهة الانقاذ الوطني الفلسطيني‎) was a coalition of Palestinian factions. The creation of the Palestinian National Salvation Front was announced on March 25, 1985 by Khalid al-Fahum.[1] The front consisted of the PFLP, PFLP-GC, as-Sa'iqa, the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front, the Palestinian Liberation Front (Talat Yaqub wing) and Fatah al-Intifada.[2][3] The Front was founded in reaction to the Amman Accord between Yasser Arafat and King Hussein of Jordan.[4]

The Palestinian National Salvation Front accused the PLO leadership of "surrenderism". It was stressed on behalf of the Front that it was not seeking to replace the PLO, but that its foundation was a temporary measure.[2]

In 1991, the PLO invited the Palestinian National Salvation Front to Tunis for reconciliation talks.[5]
