Top leaders of Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Palestine’s Hamas have met in Beirut and exchanged views on ways to promote the regional axis of resistance against Israel and thwart the threats posed by the occupiers.

Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Hamas political bureau, discussed the latest developments in Palestine, Lebanon, and the entire region in a meeting in the Lebanese capital, the Hezbollah public relations announced in a statement on Thursday.

The two top resistance officials held talks on issues revolving around “reinforcing the axis of resistance in addition to the threats [resistance is facing], and the challenges and opportunities [they can seize],” the statement said.

It added, “They stressed the need for cooperation in all areas of resistance to serve its primary purpose” of promoting the Palestinian cause against Israeli occupation, including liberation of al-Quds and Islamic sanctities.

Haniyeh also met with Lebanon’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian on Wednesday lauding his stance on al-Quds, Palestinian nation, and their cause, Palestinian news agency Sama reported.

The two also talked about the Israeli regime’s plot to change the status quo of al-Aqsa Mosque.

Lebanese defense chief demands intl. action against Israeli aggression in disputed waters

The Lebanese caretaker defense minister calls for international action against fresh Israeli provocations, after a ship arrived in disputed waters to produce gas for the Tel Aviv regime.

Haniyeh further voiced his solidarity with Lebanon in regard to its right to natural resources.

The Hamas delegation’s trip to Lebanon comes days after a gas drilling ship arrived in disputed waters in the Mediterranean Sea to conduct hydrocarbon exploration for Israel earlier this month followed by heightened tensions between Tel Aviv and Beirut.

Lebanon and Israel took part in indirect talks to discuss demarcation in 2020. But the talks stalled after Lebanon demanded a larger area, including part of the Karish gas field, where Israel has given exploration rights to a Greek firm.

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Naim Qassem has said that Hezbollah is ready to take action, “including by force,” against Israeli gas operations in the disputed waters once Beirut adopts a clearer policy.

Haniyeh has traveled to Lebanon at the head of a high-ranking delegation. He is also scheduled to visit with Lebanese President Michel Aoun, Prime Minister of Lebanon Najib Mikati, and Lebanon’s Speaker of the Parliament Nabih Berri.
