In Beirut, a meeting was held between the leadership of the Lebanese group "Hezbollah", represented by its General Secretary Hassan Nasrallah, and representatives of the Palestinian group Hamas, including the Deputy Head of Hamas in Gaza Khalil al-Hayya and Politburo member Osama Hamdan.
Their discussion, according to the channel "Al-Manar", focused on the latest events and actions in Gaza since October 7.
Additionally, Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian arrived in Beirut to hold talks with the Lebanese leadership.
Nasrallah's Reaction to the War Against Hamas
The leader of the Lebanese radical organization "Hezbollah", Hassan Nasrallah, on November 3 spoke to his supporters in Lebanon and around the world, commenting for the first time on the war between Israel and Hamas.
Nasrallah characterized the recent Hamas attacks on Israel as a wholly Palestinian action and suggested that future clashes between "Hezbollah" and Israel might occur.
He expressed approval of Hamas's actions in the attack on Israel on October 7 and highly evaluated the participation of radical groups from Yemen and Iraq in the conflict.
"Hezbollah" is one of the leading military-political forces in Lebanon, however, many Western countries, including the USA, consider it a terrorist organization.
The Deal for the Release of Hostages
The Israeli government approved an agreement with the Hamas group for a temporary ceasefire in the Gaza Strip for four days, during which some Israeli hostages will be released and humanitarian aid provided.
According to the Israeli Prime Minister's office, Benjamin Netanyahu, under the agreement, mediated by Qatar, at least 50 kidnapped women and children will be released.
The ceasefire can be extended, with each release of 10 hostages adding an additional day of truce. The Israeli government emphasized that the war will continue after the end of the ceasefire.
The agreement also includes the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails. Qatari authorities participating in the negotiations stated that the beginning of the ceasefire will be announced within 24 hours.
Hamas welcomed the agreement and confirmed that it will release 50 women and children in exchange for 150 Palestinians.
During the ceasefire, Israeli aerial activity in the southern part of Gaza will be completely halted, and in the northern part limited to certain hours.
