Talaat Yacoub, leader of the Palestine Liberation Front, a small and militant Palestinian guerrilla faction, died after a heart attack in Algeria in 1988.

He was born in British-occupied Palestine (born in 1944) not long before Israel came into being. He was one of several members of a larger, also hard-line guerrilla group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, which broke away in 1979 to form the Palestine Liberation Front. In 1981, the Palestine Liberation Front itself split in two, with some members following Mr. Yacoub and others remaining loyal to Abul Abbas.
Mr. Yacoub, a former teacher, was considered an ideologue and a hard-liner. The faction he led, variously described as pro-Syrian and pro-Iraqi, is believed to number no more than 200 members who remained loyal to Mr. Yacoub after internal splits within the group.
