TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Hezbollah’s secretary-general and Hamas Political Bureau’s chief met to discuss the latest developments in the region, including a recent normalization agreement between the UAE and the Israeli regime.
Seyed Hassan Nasrallah and Ismail Haniyeh stressed the stability of the axis of resistance against Israel, Al-Manar TV channel reported.
The meeting came during a recent visit to Beirut by the Hamas official, who has traveled to the Lebanese capital for the first time in 27 years for an across-the-board meeting of all Palestinian factions.
They discussed “political and military developments in Palestine, Lebanon and the region” and the dangers to the Palestinian cause including “Arab plans for normalization” with Israel, the report added.
The United States, Israel’s biggest ally, wheeled out the controversial deal this January. The scheme ensured Tel Aviv of Washington’s support for huge violations against Palestinians, including the Israeli regime’s annexation of some 30 percent of the occupied West Bank.
The officials emphasized the need for the resistance front’s steadiness and strength to counter these threats facing the Palestinians and the broader Muslim world.
In a statement, Hezbollah said the two resistance leaders insisted that relations between their movements must be characterized by strength and cooperation.
The groups’ ties “have been founded on the principles of faith, brotherliness, Jihad (struggle on the path of God), common destiny, and expansion of (standing) cooperation and coordination mechanisms between them,” it added.
