Hamas wants Hezbollah to join the now three-week-old conflict with Israel, the deputy political bureau chief of the Palestinian Islamist organization reportedly said on Wednesday.

Moussa Abu Mazrouk, who serves as Khaled Mashaal’s top deputy and who is currently based in Cairo, told the Russian news agency RIA Novosti on Wednesday that the organization hoped that the Lebanese Shi’ite group would engage Israel from the north.“We hope the Lebanese front will open and together we will fight against this formation [Israel],” Abu Marzouk told RIA Novosti.

“There’s no arguing that Lebanese resistance could mean a lot,” Abu Marzouk said.
