Hezbollah, Amal and Hamas Resolve to Unite Efforts in Fight Against Israel
A delegation representing the Lebanese Shia Amal political party and terror group Hezbollah visited Hamas offices in Lebanon this week and resolved to work together to fight Israel, Hezbollah affiliated Al-Manar reported on Monday.
The delegates, which included Hezbollah’s press chief Sadreddine Dawood, and chief of refugee affairs Abu Wael Zalzali, met with Jihad Taha, a member of the political leadership of Hamas in the El-Buss refugee camp north of Tyre on the southern Lebanese coast.
The visit coincided with the Muslim Eid al-Fitr festival, and was intended to “stress the deep ties that bind the Lebanese and Palestinian peoples,” Al-Manar said.
Those assembled at the meeting expressed hopes that “the coming days will carry with them goodness and promises of victory against all of the enemies of [the Muslim community], chief among them the Israeli enemy…”
In a statement issued following the gathering, the assembled delegation added, “what is required today is denying this enemy, which is constantly trying to sneak up on all of us, with any opportunity, and to unite behind the project of resistance and confrontation.”
Confronting Israel is best achieved through “internal stability, especially on the Lebanese and Palestinian level,” they said.
