can refer in rep to the "al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a militant offshoot of
the Palestinian Fatah movement"
My source says Hizbullah, acting upon Iranian dictates, has decided to buy
off top commanders in Kataeb Shuhadaa al-Aqsa (al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade),
which originated from fateh Movement. This operation is being coordinated
by Lebanese Hizbullah leader Hajj Ibrahim Aqil, who is in charge of
Unit-1800 that recruits Palestinian activists, especially from al-Aqsa
Brigade. Hizbullah, who is receiving the financial and technical support
of Iran's Jerusalem Corps, is paying each commander from al-Aqsa Brigade
about $40,000 (this number cannot be right***) a month to spend on his
unit and for procuring arms.

Hizbullah wants to create a new Palestinian movement called Palestinian
Hizbullah. For this purpose, Hizbullah is training Palestinians in its
camps in the Biqaa Valley and also in IRGC camps near Tehran. Iran aims at
creating an efficient Palestinian military force along Lebanese Hizbullah
lines, whom it wants to become a role model for Palestinian militants.

Hizbullah is also expanding its smuggling of drugs, especially heroin to
Israel. Hizbullah official Qais Obeid is in charge of smuggling drugs.
Hizbullah has two aims: (1)provide a source of financial assistance to
pro-Hizbullah Palestinian militants and (2) damage the fabric of Israeli
society. During the past four months alone Israel imported 50 kgs of
heroin as opposed to only one kg in 2005.
