Hezbollah paper attacks #Hamas re:#Aleppo

18 Dec

According to the 16h of December report on the Middle East Monitor website:

Lebanon’s newspaper Al Akhbar, affiliated with Hezbollah, attacked Hamas due to its condemnation of the “massacres and genocide” committed by the Syrian regime, its Russian ally, and the Shia militias against civilians in Syria’s Aleppo.

The report goes on to state:

The Hezbollah newspaper considered Hamas’ position condemning the massacres in Aleppo as “an expression of an integral part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s involvement in the battle, as it is not far from Salafist theorisation and is hostile towards the Syrian state and its allies.”

 My take:

Its unclear whether Hamas military wing (Izadin Alqassam) also shares this condemnation, as historically it has been happy to receive weapons from Iran (for free), even at times when the political wing of Hamas has had tense relations with the Iranian regime.

In any case, this is bad news for the Iranian regime. First the PLO head Mahmoud Abbas took a picture with Maryam Rajavi, the head of the MEK which is an arch nemesis of the Iranian regime. An now Hamas is accusing Shia militia of “massacres and genocide”. The Iranian regime’s stock in the Sunni world is falling faster than many Israeli Generals could ever imagine (dream).
