Still, he gravitated increasingly into conflict with Yassir Arafat, head of Fatah and PLO. Abu Musa was a member of Fatah's leftist opposition, known to advocate the view that the Palestinians and the Lebanese National Movement were in fact fighting a class war against the Lebanese bourgeoisie, rather than participating in a sectarian conflict.

In October 1983, full-scale fighting broke out, and Abu Musa's organization - dubbed Fatah Uprising (or Fatah al-Intifada in Arabic) - received massive backing from Syria, in the form of supplies and ammunition, but also direct military assistance from the Syrian Army, the Syrian brigades of the Palestinian Liberation Army, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) and as-Sa'iqa.
