A senior Lebanese security official has offered to mediate in the dispute between Hezbollah and Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya, whose ties have been strained by sharp differences over the 4-year-old war in Syria, sources in Jamaa said Wednesday.Hezbollah officials were not immediately available to comment on the proposed dialogue with Jamaa.At that time, a Jamaa military commander said the group opened its training camps east of Sidon to Hezbollah members to run military training courses.Noting that his group maintained strong political ties and cooperation with Hezbollah in the 1980s, the Jamaa source expressed regret that relations have almost been broken now, "especially after Hezbollah intervened in the war in Syria and stood on the side of the Syrian regime in killing its people.' However, the source criticized the Future Movement for unilaterally deciding to enter into dialogue with Hezbollah and for keeping some of its members in the dark about its results.
