Leading Palestinian militia officials from Hamas and the Islamic Jihad have met with the commander of Lebanese Hezbollah military force. Hezbollah released a statement stating that the three talked about what their partnership needed to do in order to win a “complete triumph” over Israel.
According to the statement, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah, Saleh al-Arouri, the deputy leader of Hamas, and Ziad al-Nakhala, the leader of Islamic Jihad, attended the meeting today. The location of the meeting remained unknown.
Lebanese official media Al-Manar cited the statement as stating, “The leaders addressed latest advancements since the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood and the incidents that ensued on all fronts, including the clashes across the border between Lebanon and the occupied Palestine.”
The comment was made in reference to the Hamas onslaught on Israel 18 days earlier that left at least 1,400 Israeli citizens dead. More than 5,700 Palestinians were murdered in Gaza as a result of the reaction that followed the initial onslaught.
“In this crucial phase, Sayyed Nasrallah evaluated alongside Nakhale and al-Arouri the global and regional positions along with the actions that the Axis of Resistance must undertake to secure a comprehensive triumph and halt the heinous assault on the marginalized populace of Gaza and the West Bank,” a further part of the statement read.
Hezbollah and Israeli soldiers have engaged in nearly daily gunfire battles across the Israel-Lebanon borderline since the strike on October 7. With the announcement of two additional militants’ deaths on Wednesday, the Lebanese group’s death toll from the war now stands at forty fighters.
According to the health service officials, as Israel intensifies its attacks on the enclave, 704 Palestinians, including 305 children, lost their lives Yesterday.
The number of casualties, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, was the most recorded for a single day since the conflict started. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 100 individuals have also died in fighting with the Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank.
There are still worries that the fighting may spread throughout the region. The Syrian army’s infrastructure was also struck by Israeli planes, according to the Israeli military, in retaliation for rockets fired from the neighboring nation.
The military refrained from revealing further information, but it also denied that the two missiles were fired by the Syrian army. According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), which cited a military source, the Israeli strike near the southwest city of Deraa resulted in the deaths of eight troops and seven injuries.
