The politicized Iranian funding for specific Palestinian factions has deepened the Palestinian division, and placed the Palestinian issue in a polarizing focal point that was indispensable, so that confrontations between brothers based on their disagreement over the issue of the relationship with Iran, and even reached an attempt to use those movements as a bridge to spread Shiism between The Palestinians, like the Al-Sabreen Shiite movement that appeared in the Gaza Strip, is affiliated with Iran, and aims to mortgage the Palestinian cause as a bargaining chip for Tehran’s rulers.
This support was linked to narrow political goals, as funding was cut off or retreated in recent years due to the disagreement regarding the position on the Syrian crisis, but it came back again when those factions reviewed their position, as Iran aimed to create flashpoints in Gaza to divert attention from its internal situation and use it. A bargaining chip in the framework of its negotiations with America and Europe.
In Syria, the Hafez al-Assad regime was attacking the Arab countries, led by Egypt, for making peace with Israel and supporting Palestinian factions, then it became clear that this support was the price of diverting the compass of those factions to fight to defend his regime and not Palestine, which was evident when the protests erupted in 2011 against the Assad regime, so the latter resorted to diverting the battle abroad, and instructed the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – the General Command – to ignite the situation in the Golan, which was what actually happened. 23 people, and 350 injured, on Sunday 16 August 2020, when the Israeli army opened fire on Palestinian protesters; What ignited a state of extreme frustration and a sense that Palestinian blood is cheap, and that the Syrian regime is using the Palestinians to divert attention from its internal crisis. The unrest erupted when the funeral of eight Palestinians who were killed in the Golan turned into a protest against the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – the pro-Syrian General Command, and hundreds of refugees went to The headquarters of the Front, and they tried to storm it, and its members killed at least 11 Palestinians by firing bullets in the Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus, and in return, the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization vowed to pursue those responsible for their killing.
Thus, the support provided to the Palestinians from the countries of the so-called axis of resistance and resistance was the price of diverting them from their cause, and the monopoly of these countries to speak in the name of the cause, using it as a bargaining chip, and bargaining with it with the West at the expense of Palestinian blood.
In the midst of the Lebanese civil war, the Palestinian element was a main fuel in those battles that lasted 15 years, and the camps of Tal Al-Zaatar and Dbayeh near Beirut – 1976 were liquidated by Palestinian elements, but the supporters were imposing their agendas on those receiving support, and the war ended with the expulsion of the PLO from Lebanon. And the attempt to impose other organizations supported by the so-called opposition to represent the Palestinians.
Whereas the so-called “opposition front” portrayed themselves as the protector of the Palestinian cause, and it increased on Arab regimes such as Egypt and the Arab Gulf states, in this file, the books and records of recent history prove the extent to which this alleged front, led by Iran, is underestimating the Arab mind, and its audacity to exploit Palestinian blood is a price for settling scores, and even false propaganda.
Iran and the leaders of the so-called “opposition front” have recruited the Palestinians of the diaspora in their battles, forcing them to join militias and factions that fought against the Arabs, and sometimes against their Palestinian citizens, as happened in the massacre of Tel Zaatar in Lebanon, at the hands of the Popular Front – General Command led by Ahmed Jibril And other facts of the Lebanese civil war that afflicted the Palestinians for nearly 15 years, especially during the First Camp War in Beirut 1985-1986, with the participation of the Amal Movement supported by Iran; Hundreds of Palestinians were killed as part of their attempts to expel the Palestine Liberation Organization and its legitimate leaders from Beirut, and they returned again with the participation of the defectors from Fatah in the second camp war in 1988; They besieged Shatila camp, Burj Al-Barajneh and others from the morning of the third of April until July in clashes in which hundreds of Palestinians were killed, and thousands were displaced to camps in southern Lebanon.
Today, several organizations are fighting in Syria, which Palestinian refugees have been coerced into joining them, and those who refuse are considered traitors and agents of armed opposition groups, and they are arrested and liquidated, while thousands of Palestinian youths migrated from Syria to escape forced conscription and security prosecution.
Among the most prominent of these organizations are the “Fatah-Intifada” movement, the “Thunderbolt” organization, the “Free Palestine” movement, the “Popular Struggle Front”, the “Galilee Forces” and the “Palestinian Liberation Army”; As the militias of these forces have spread in the Yarmouk camp, in Khan Dunoun camp, Sayeda Zeinab, Husseiniya, Jaramana, Eastern Ghouta in Damascus and its countryside, and in Daraa, the Badia, and Deir Ezzor, in addition to the camps that are under the control of the regime forces in Syria, such as the returnees camp in Homs, Hama and Neirab camp in Aleppo, and Raml in Lattakia.
According to the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria, 728 Palestinians were killed while fighting alongside the Syrian regime forces, and 276 of them were killed while fighting in the ranks of the “Palestinian Liberation Army,” which forces all of the 18 years of Palestinian refugees in Syria to join it.
Among the dead, 100 were members of the “Popular Front – General Command” and 85 were killed while they were fighting alongside the so-called “Palestinian Jerusalem Brigade,” an armed militia established in Aleppo, northern Syria, which is affiliated with the regime forces, and differs from the “Jerusalem Brigade.” »The Iranian brigade, which is led by the Syrian Palestinian Muhammad al-Saeed, from the Nayrab camp in Aleppo, has also been fighting 35 Palestinians because of their participation in the side of the“ Fatah-Intifada ”organization, 21 members of what is known as the“ Galilee Forces, ”and 24 members of the“ Free Palestine ”movement »Which is led by Yasser Qashlak, while 187 died due to their participation in the fighting alongside popular groups and committees affiliated with the Syrian security branches.
