Tear between Hezbollah, Hamas: 'Leave Lebanon'
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

As thousands of Hezbollah men aid Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces and fight alongside them in Qusair, they are faced with an organization that until recently was their close ally –Hamas. Arab media reported Thursday morning that according to Syrian opposition sources, in light of Hamas' support of Syrian rebels, Hezbollah is demanding of Hamas men still in Lebanon to leave the country "immediately and within hours."

Lebanese officials close to Fatah said that a Lebanese defense official said to Hamas' representative in the country, Ali Baraka, that all people affiliated with Hamas in Lebanon are no longer welcome in the country. The decision came as a response to the Palestinian Islamist movement’s role in the ongoing war in Syria against the regime of President Assad.

Baraka himself denied the report to Lebanese newspaper Al-Liwaa. "We contacted Hezbollah officials who were surprised from this report," the Hamas representative claimed. "Hamas is staying in Lebanon and nothing has changed so far," he clarified.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem elaborated on the regime's relation with Hamas Wednesday. "No Arab country gave Hamas what Syria has given them," the Syrian minister claimed. Moallem never confirmed that Hamas is taking part in the Syrian battle against the Assad regime, yet said: "Syria was put on the US terrorist organizations list because of its support of Hamas and because it hosts it in its territory. In my last meeting with Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal, he said that Hamas will leave Syria because of its foreign relations issues and that the organization will move to Qatar."

In April, the London Times reported that Hamas, which terminated ties with the Assad regime, began training the Free Syrian Army rebels in Damascus. Diplomatic sources told the Times that members of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades are training the opposition organization members in areas under their control. That development confirmed that Hamas has officially disconnected from Syria and adopted Qatar as the new patron.


The Assad regime has given Hamas refuge since 1999, when the organization was expelled from Jordan. It became part of the "resistance axis," composed by Iran and Hezbollah as well, yet with the start of the uprising it found itself jammed between the loyalty to the regime and its obligation to its Palestinian supporters, who mostly support the opposition. As the only Sunni movement in the axis it could not have turned its back on the Sunnis, fighting the Alawites – the dominant community in Syria for the past few decades. As the civil war intensified, Hamas shut its offices in Syria and Mashaal left Damascus.

  • Palestinians are expert back stabbers. They did it to Jordan in the 70's, Lebanon in the 80's, Kuwait in the 90's, Egypt recently (helping in attacks against Egyptian soldiers) and now they repay 40 years worth of support from Syria, by fighting against the state.

    • @tyrinian exactly, in the early 1900's most of the land was sold to European Jews, that's something they don't teach you in Hezbollah school. Have you heard of the Iranian-Israeli military alliance in the 80's? The apple doesn't fall that far from the tree.

  • Israeli created (no joke) Hamas has revealed it's bs inner working and agenda, they got close to Iran, Syria & Hizballah, whom fed, housed, trained & armed them in their legitimate cause. Now the Hamas leaders will live filthy off millions of Qatari Petrdollars in Doha while the average Gazan will ultimately pay for it.

      The fairy tale Israel created Hamas is just another one of the fairy tails being spread regarding Israel on the internet.

      Israel didn't create Hamas, it closed it's eyes in the early days of Hamas (the 80's) in order to let the Palestinians have a balance group to the Fatah.

      By 1989 Hamas already executed terror attacks and Israel considered them as a dangerous radical org.

    • @aydeo Okay not physically created it, but I mean that it was infiltrated and guided and supplied because Israel allowed things by pulling a few strings, Many Palestinian 'resistance fighters' were known as Agent's of Israel...

    • @IRQ Kebab first of, Mossad is an international agency- nothing to do with internal affairs such as Hamas, Fatah...etc
      Your probably referring to the Shabak, but I doubt that's even possible.

      Hamas was created as an extremist side-party out of the PLO-Fatah "occupation resistance" nothing more then a bunch of corrupted Muslim extremist thugs who are making the average Palestinian persons life a living hell.

  • Hamas is a Suuni organisation, of course they would side with the opposition fighters. They already cut ties with Iran and Hezbo. They are ally with Egypt's MB, Qatar and AKP Turkey now. Iran and Hz are completely isolated now, Iran, the only major Shia power knows they will fall if Assad falls.

  • Well, Hamas has been training rebels in Syria for quite some time and since Hezbollah is now actively participating in the civil war, it's understandable.

  • These are false claims and have been presented earlier as well.

    Hamas have "ambassadors" to Hezbollah in Beirut.
    Many in Hamas do not agree with the way it has been run and the extreme loss of weapon supply and support.

    Jordan, Egypt and israel work together to block all weapons from entering Gaza; this is after the controlled disarming of its rockets at the end of 2012. The weakest Resistance link was removed, now the arab conspirators have to keep their deal and stop anything More..

    • @MortenHj

      "Certain parts of Hamas are true betrayers but many completely disagree as well"

      You just contradicted yourself.

      Funny, when I was near Beit Nabir/gush etzion (west bank-) there was a big Palestinian rally in support of the FSA resistance.

      Hamas the leading party in the Gaza and the West Bank fully support the FSA.

      It's the "other" Palestinians living under Assad in the Damascus settlements that still support Assad...no surprises here.

      Do your res More..

  • This is great news.
    The split between Sunni muslims and the other flavors of muslims just keeps getting wider.
    As much as I despise the mullahs, the Iranians and the Alawites are much kinder to minorities than the wahabis.
    Wahabis tend to try and liquidate any other groups so anything other than them is preferable.

  • Yap, after everything Assad did for the Palestinians in the Damascus suburbs, and they turn around and backstab the 1 true hand that's helping them. Just shows how much the Palestinians are ungrateful and care about short-term support while throwing the real helpers under the bus.

    Watch and see what they do with that 4 billion dollar US Kerry gave them.

  • Not sure the source can be trusted or the poster, considering they are both Israeli.

    But even thou I support Hamas, I wish they didn't get involved, especially "if" Assad did help them in the past. But I can also see they are most likely doing this to promote themselves and raise their reputation, but then again if Syria falls, Israel will have fewer enemies in the region, so I don't like this at all. They should keep focused on the Israeli rats, not falling for divide and conquer t More..
