Militant group had rocky ties with Palestinian factions in Lebanon

from the Associated Press

Beirut-based Palestinian expert Majed Azzam said the offer to fight alongside Hezbollah was made by all the Palestinian factions in Lebanon, and rejected. "Hezbollah told them thank you very much, but we'd rather do this on our own," Azzam said. Al-Absi subscribes to the Salafi and takfiri ideology of Islam that urges Sunni Muslims to kill anyone they consider an infidel, even Shiite Muslims. But Azzam said despite that, al-Absi has never spoken against the Shiite Hezbollah because it is fighting Israel.
