Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah hosted Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror chiefs on Saturday in Beirut, according to Arab media reports.

Hamas deputy politburo head Saleh al-Arouri and PIJ secretary general Ziyad al-Nakhala joined the secretary general of the Iran-backed Lebanese terror group to discuss “the latest political developments, especially with regard to the Palestinians,” according to a joint statement.

“During the meeting, there was a joint assessment of the situation in the West Bank and the escalation of the resistance movement there, as well as the recent Israeli threats,” the statement read.

The statement added, “The firm position of all the forces of the axis of resistance in confronting the Zionist enemy, its occupation, and its arrogance was emphasized.”

During the meeting it was agreed on “the importance of daily and permanent coordination and communication between resistance movements, especially in Palestine and Lebanon, to follow up on all political, security and military developments and make the appropriate decisions.”

The meeting was held nearly a week after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iranian terror proxies in the region that they would “pay the full price” for terror acts against Israelis.

“Hamas, and the other Iranian proxies, understand very well that we will fight with all means against their attempts to use terrorism against us—in Judea and Samaria, Gaza and everywhere else. Whoever tries to hurt us, whoever finances and organizes, whoever dispatches terrorists against Israel—will pay the full price,” Netanyahu said last Sunday.
