There are plenty of reasons. Money, door the Palestinians pay for their arms. Influence, it's quite possible the Hezbo's may have influence with some of those who oppose Assad and if not they might provide Assad men in return. Remember Assad needs to hire mercenaries to really fight his resistance for his military doesn't want to go out and kill their brothers and other family members. And finally yeah, he wants the world focused on a Hezbo/Israel conflict. In the 1980's we got the world to stop fretting "death squads" in El Salvador by instead focusing on a revolution in Nicaraugua. The added benefit of supplying the Nic revolution was it stopped Nic's communist govt from arming communist insurgents in El Salvador. If not for Iran / Contra it was a plan one could say truly worked!
