The war of the camps in Beirut in the 1980 was between the PLO and the shiite Amal-movement led by Nabih Berri, Syria's proxy in Lebanon, who wanted to bring the Palestinian camps under his control for Hafez al-Assad. Hezbollah was not involved and actually opposed this war. After the betrayal of Sabra&Shatila the PLO-fighters who had left their families unprotected only to see them massacred slipped back into Lebanon and to the camps to protect their people. At the time Hezbollah was engaged in resistance activities in South Lebanon, helped by Palestinian fighters from the local camps. The relationship with Hezbollah was actually quite good. The war of the camps was a horrible war where the poor where fighting the poor. Fortunately relationships between the Palestinians and the shiite Amal movement have improved a lot since then.
