None of the Palestinian factions want to draw Lebanon into the current Gaza conflict, a senior Hamas official told The Daily Star Wednesday, following a number of rocket attacks aimed at Israel over the past week.However, Hamdan declined to denounce the recent spate of rockets launched from south Lebanon toward Israel.On four separate occasions over the past week, individuals in south Lebanon have launched approximately 10 rockets toward Israel.Despite a public rift that has erupted between Hezbollah and Hamas in recent months over the war in Syria, Hamdan insisted the two parties were still allies.While distance prevented Hezbollah and Hamas from taking "direct action" together in Gaza, according to Hamdan the Lebanese party remained a steadfast partner of the Palestinian cause. Hamas has launched nearly 1,000 rockets at Israel over the past nine days.
