Leaders of Lebanon's Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas movement have met to discuss diplomatic normalization between Israel and Arab countries, a media report said Sunday.
They stressed the "stability" of the "axis of resistance" against Israel, the Hezbollah-run Al-Manar TV channel reported, without saying where or when the meeting took place.
Nasrallah has been living in a secret location for years and makes very few public appearances. He said in 2014 that he often changes his place of residence.
Hassan Nasrallah, head of the Hezbollah movement, was pictured meeting Ismail Haniyeh, who heads the political bureau of Hamas, that control the Gaza Strip.
They discussed "political and military developments in Palestine, Lebanon and the region" and "the dangers to the Palestinian cause" including "Arab plans for normalization" with Israel, Al-Manar said.
The meeting comes after an August 13 announcement that Israel and the United Arab Emirates have agreed to normalize ties.
While the US-backed diplomatic drive aims to boost a regional alliance against Iran, Palestinians have condemned it as a "stab in the back" as they remain under occupation and don't have their own state.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed that his country is in talks with other Arab and Muslim leaders now about normalising relations, following the deals with UAE and, decades ago, Egypt and Jordan.
Haniyeh has been in Lebanon since Wednesday, on his first visit to the country in nearly 30 years, for direct and video-conference talks with other Palestinian groups that oppose Israel's diplomatic initiative.
Israel's military has in recent weeks targeted Hamas in the Gaza Strip, claiming that there have been Hezbollah gunmen along its northern border with Lebanon.
It also regularly launches air strikes in war-torn Syria against what it claims are Hezbollah and other pro-Iranian militants fighting on the side of President Bashar al-Assad's regime.First visit in 30 years
Haniya arrived in Lebanon on Wednesday, on his first visit to the country in nearly 30 years, for direct and video-conference talks with other Palestinian groups that oppose Israel's diplomatic initiative.
Haniya, who heads the political bureau of Hamas, the movement that controls the Gaza Strip, arrived in Ain al-Helweh under the protection of Hamas members and camp guards.
Before a cheering crowd of hundreds in Ain al-Helweh, near the southern coastal city of Sidon, including refugees who travelled to see him from other camps, Haniya praised his movement's military capacity and shrugged off the UAE-Israel normalization deal.
"Not long ago, our rockets only reached [targets] metres from Gaza's borders. Today, the resistance in Gaza possesses rockets that can reach Tel Aviv and beyond Tel Aviv," he said.
As for normalization between Israel and Arab countries, that "does not represent the people, neither their conscience, nor their history nor their heritage", Haniya said, quoted in a Hamas statement.
