 – The head of Lebanon’s Hezbollah met with top leaders of the Palestinian militant factions Hamas and Islamic Jihad, according to a report by Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV, saying they had assessed what their alliance must do to “achieve a real victory for the resistance” in Gaza.

The meeting grouped Hezbollah’s Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, with Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri, and Islamic Jihad chief Ziad al-Nakhala, al-Manar reported.

“The meeting … assessed the positions taken internationally and what the Axis of Resistance must do”, a headline on al-Manar said, referring to an alliance of Iran, Palestinian militant groups, Syria, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and other factions.
