Hizbullah, Hamas, Iran to meet in Damascus

June 21, 2010 1:06 P.M. (Updated: June 21, 2010 9:04 P.M.)
Bethlehem – Ma'an - Palestinian opposition factions, Hizbullah officials and a delegation of Iranians, will soon meet in Damascus, the Kuwaiti Al-Anba daily newspaper reported on Monday.

The meeting, according to the anonymous source quoted in the paper, will take place in late June, under official Syrian patronage, in an effort to activate resistance in the region in light of an expected Israeli offensive against Iran or against Hizbullah in Lebanon.

Initial arrangements for the meeting, according to senior Palestinian sources speaking to the Kuwaiti paper, were made at a commemoration event for leader of the Iranian revolution in 1979 Ayatollah Syed Ruhollah Moosavi Khomeini, who died on 4 June 1989.

As part of an apparent ramp up in relations between Palestinian opposition factions - namely Hamas and Islamic Jihad - Lebanon and Syria, the groups were reportedly permitted to establish community centers in the refugee camps of southern Lebanon, which had previously been prohibited in favor of involvement from PLO-faction centers, the paper reported.
