TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The secretary general of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement and the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement held talks on the developments in the two countries and issues related to the axis of resistance.
Hezbollah’s public relations office announced on Sunday that Seyed Hassan Nasrallah received Ziad al-Nakhaleh in the capital Beirut, with the two leaders exchanging views on the latest developments in Palestine, Lebanon and the wider region.
Mohammed al-Hindi, head of the Islamic Jihad’s political bureau, also accompanied Nakhaleh in the meeting with the Hezbollah chief.
“An assessment of events was held during the meeting, during which both challenges and chances the axis of resistance has been facing were also discussed,” the office said in a statement.
Earlier in the month, Nasrallah met with Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the political bureau of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas. The two sides also exchanged views on the region and the challenges facing the resistance front.
Over the past months, Israel has ramped up attacks on Palestinian towns and cities throughout the occupied territories. As a result of these attacks, dozens of Palestinians have lost their lives and many others have been arrested.
More than 200 Palestinians have been killed by Israel since the beginning of this year, including 36 children.
The United Nations has warned that 2023 is on track to be the deadliest year for Palestinians since it started recording fatalities.
At least 26 people have been killed in Palestinian attacks against Israelis this year.
