The Syrian regime arrested Ibrahim the son of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad's historical leader, Fathi Shaqaqi, from the outskirts of Yarmouk camp. According to various Arabic news sources, Shaqaqi has joined an already growing number of Palestinians since the Syrian revolution has started. The anger among Palestinians in Syria, even those allied with the regime, will continue to grow after such arrests.
Shaqaqi has been a historical figure since his assassination by the Israeli Mossad in Malta in 1995; he has been a close friend to Hezbollah, and this relationship with the Islamic Jihad continued. It is expected that Hezbollah's leadership intervenes to release Shaqaqi junior, regardless of his involvement in anti-regime activity.
The Islamic Jihad is closely allied to the Syrian regime, and has some of its cadres based in Damascus. They have been dragged to prison one after the other; pressure will now increase to release them.The Syrian regime has been known for using this tactic to get public support from Palestinians, and the Jihad has been silent recently, so is it connected? Highly think so.
