Report: Hamas-Hizbullah Reconciliation Fails

Efforts to resolve the crisis between Hamas and Hizbullah have failed, following Hamas's expression of support for Syrian rebels, according to a Tuesday-morning report by the semi-official Egyptian newspaper, Al-Ahram.

The daily cited Palestinian Authority and Lebanese sources who said Hizbullah has been trying to find ways to remove Hamas members from Beirut, following a call by Hamas for Hizbullah to withdraw its forces from Syria.
