Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah expressed solidarity on Monday with the Palestinian people, voicing support to Hamas.
In a phone call between Nasrallah and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal, the Hizbullah chief stressed that the Lebanese resistance stands by the intifada of the Palestinians.
“We stand by the the intifada and the resistance of the Palestinian people and we share the same will, hopes and fate,” Nasrallah told Meshaal, according to a statement issued by Hizbullah's press office.
Hizbullah is currently engaged in battles in neighboring Syria to back President Bashar Assad's army as he battles insurgents who have been trying to overthrow him since 2011.
Hizbullah's involvement in Syria has prompted bomb attacks by extremist groups against areas in Lebanon sympathetic to the group, killing mostly civilians.
More than 476 people have been killed so far in Israeli violence on the Gaza Strip.
The latest Israeli aggression on the Gaza began on July 8, with Israel announcing on July 17 that it would undertake ground operations in the strip.
