The leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon recently met with senior figures from the Palestinian groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad, international media reported on Wednesday.

The discussions primarily focused on strategies to secure what they termed as a “real victory for the resistance.”

According to a statement by Hezbollah, as reported by Asharq Al-Awsat, the meeting involved Hezbollah’s Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah, Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri, and Islamic Jihad chief Ziad al-Nakhala.

Hezbollah has been engaged in a series of clashes with Israeli forces along the Israeli-Lebanese border since Israel began bombardment on Plaestine killing over 5,000 people so far.

In light of these events, the leaders emphasized the importance of coordinated efforts within what they referred to as the Axis of Resistance to counter international positions and put an end to what they termed as Israel’s “treacherous and brutal aggression” against Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.

The death toll among Hezbollah fighters has risen to 40 since the commencement of the conflict, as two more fighters were announced to have been killed, the newspaper reported.

Despite the ongoing confrontations, Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, has not publicly addressed the Gaza conflict or the clashes on the Lebanon-Israel border. Nevertheless, other senior Hezbollah officials have issued warnings to Israel regarding any potential ground invasion in Gaza.

Israeli officials have reiterated their commitment to respond forcefully to any potential cross-border attacks initiated by Hezbollah from Lebanon.
