Hamas leaders meet with Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad to plot ‘victory’ against Israel

Leaders with Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad met Wednesday to discuss their ongoing war against Israel

Hezbollah official Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri and Islamic Jihad chief Ziad al-Nakhala spoke Wednesday about the conflict.

“An assessment was made of the international positions being taken and what the parties of the Axis of Resistance must do […] to realize a real victory for the resistance in Gaza and Palestinian and to halt the brutal aggression,” a communiqué from Hezbollah said.

Nevertheless, the Tuesday barrage from Hamas marks a spike in its aggression over the past 18 days of war, with the Jerusalem Post reporting that it is the single largest attack since the war began, next to the Hamas violence on Oct. 7.

Hamas has so far released four of the roughly 200 hostages it took in the Oct. 7 attack. The terror groups released two Americans and two Israelis, but there have been no further updates on negotiations.
