  • Hezbollah leader, Islamic Jihad chief urge steadfastness to achieve ‘promised victory’

The top resistance leaders of Lebanon and Palestine assert that it is necessary to remain steadfast and work tirelessly to achieve the promised victory.

Secretary General of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and Secretary General of Palestine’s Islamic Jihad movement Ziad al-Nakhaleh held a meeting on Monday.

During the meeting, the two resistance leaders discussed the latest developments in the war-torn Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank, encompassing both political and on-ground situations, amid incessant Israel’s brutal attacks against the people of Palestine.

Nasrallah and Nakhaleh also exchanged views about the condition of other fronts opened by the Axis of Resistance in support of the Palestinian people and resistance in the face of Israel.

The discussions also touched upon existing possibilities and expected developments, whether on the field or in political communications.

Israel launched a devastating war on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s resistance movements carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.

The Israeli military has also been carrying out attacks against the Lebanese territory since then, prompting retaliatory strikes from Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah in support of the Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The movement has vowed to keep up its reprisal operations as long as the Tel Aviv regime continues its onslaught on Gaza.

The aggression against Gaza has so far claimed the lives of over 28,340 Palestinians, mostly women and children, leaving more than 67,980 others wounded.
