Hamas leader Ismail Haniya met with Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah near Beirut ( Lebanon ). The topic of conversation was the issue of joint resistance to Israel's actions. Remarkably, the Hamas leader was in Lebanon all last week. Hezbollah has so far not openly interfered in the ongoing confrontation but it can be ruled out that last week's rocket attack in which Lebanon fired about 100 rockets at Israel frames within these talks. Tensions continue to rise.
Between Syria and Israel, things are also up in arms. Last Sunday morning, Israel launched artillery strikes on Syria after several rockets were fired from there and crashed into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Israel's retaliatory attack on rocket attacks from Syria - which no one has claimed - is the latest episode in the escalating violence in the region.
On Sunday night, an Israeli drone also attacked launch facilities in Syria from which rockets were launched into Israeli territory."
The 1,200-square-kilometre area - guarded by Israeli soldiers and bordering Lebanon - was captured from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. Israel later annexed it in a move that was never recognised by the international community.
The various flashpoints in the world, including the conflict between Taiwan and China, are alarming, especially as the USA is interfering in each of these conflicts, pushing for war instead of calming tempers and taking on a mediating role.
