Recently the pro al qaida Abdallah Azzam Brigades warned Shiites in Lebanon to serious, if Hedzbollah continues to support Bashar Assad in Syria.

The pro al-qaeda warning appeared as an audio message on a jihadist website on Aug. 17 and was recently picked up by the lebanese media. In the message they warned Shiites in Lebanon that “the positions of Hezbollah and the Amal Movement vis-à-vis the Syrian revolution do not serve the sect’s best interest … If you maintain your arrogant attitude, you will be punished, and you will pay. You only have yourselves to blame.”

The Abdallah Azzam Brigades  has allegedly some connectivity with militants based in North Lebanon, and they have been moving freely between Lebanon and Syria as a result of the Syrian crisis. The Brigades can easily transfer militants from Syria to Lebanon in order to carry out attacks against Hezbollah and Amal Movement.
