Hassan Nasrallah, the head of the powerful Iranian-backed terror organization Hezbollah, reportedly met with Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) Sec.-Gen. Ziyad al-Nakhalah and the deputy head of the Political Bureau of Hamas in Lebanon, Ismail Haniyeh. The purpose of the high-level trilateral meeting was reportedly to strengthen the Iranian-coordinated terror alliance against Israel.
The three terror groups reportedly also discussed “political developments especially in Palestine, with a joint assessment of the situation in the West Bank and the escalation of resistance movement there and the recent Israeli threats.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran and its terrorist proxies for the escalating terrorism in the West Bank. The Israeli premier warned that Israel could potentially respond by striking terror chiefs based in Lebanon and in the Gaza Strip.
Nasrallah responded by warning Jerusalem against targeted assassinations in Lebanon and Gaza and further denied that Iran was behind the increasing number of coordinated terror attacks against Israelis in the West Bank.
”The Israeli enemy, in the face of the escalation of resistance in the West Bank, fled to accuse Iran and to pretend that what is happening there is an Iranian plan and that the Palestinians there are tools, and this is foolishness,” stated Nasrallah.
The “resistance movement” has become a euphemism for increased coordinated terror attacks against Israel and Jews. In the past, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and Lebanon constituted separate terror fronts against Israel.
However, the pro-Iranian media outlet Al-Mayadeen confirmed the three terror groups seek “political, military and security developments, and coordination between the resistance movements, especially in occupied Palestine and Lebanon.”
