IDF kills Hamas commander as it continues to strike Gaza
FOX News’ Trey Yingst reports the latest from southern Israel.
Leaders with Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad met Wednesday to discuss their ongoing war against Israel.
Hezbollah official Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri and Islamic Jihad chief Ziad al-Nakhala spoke Wednesday about the conflict.
“An assessment was made of the international positions being taken and what the parties of the Axis of Resistance must do […] to realize a real victory for the resistance in Gaza and Palestinian and to halt the brutal aggression,” a communiqué from Hezbollah said.

The message added, “There was agreement on continuing the coordination.”
Israel is fighting an intricate conflict against a coalition of militant groups bolstered and supported by Iran.
Earlier this month, Hamas terrorists launched thousands of missiles at Israel and invaded towns along the Gaza border, killing at least 1,400 people and wounding thousands more. The actions from the Iran-backed group resulted in Israel declaring war.

Hezbollah, which is armed with tens of thousands of rockets, has teased aggressions with Israel, even firing anti-tank missiles into northern Israel and targeting military outposts.
Hezbollah has lost approximately 40 combatants since they entered the Israel-Hamas conflict.
Hamas has fired thousands of rockets into Israel since launching its unprecedented assault on Oct. 7. Israel has responded in kind, destroying thousands of Hamas targets in Gaza with airstrikes.

Nevertheless, the Tuesday barrage from Hamas marks a spike in its aggression over the past 18 days of war, with the Jerusalem Post reporting that it is the single largest attack since the war began, next to the Hamas violence on Oct. 7.
Hamas has so far released four of the roughly 200 hostages it took in the Oct. 7 attack. The terror groups released two Americans and two Israelis, but there have been no further updates on negotiations.
