This meeting comes amid Israeli threats to assassinate Saleh Al-Arouri, a prominent leader of Hamas and founding commander of the group's military wing - Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, who resides in Lebanon. With tensions between Israel and Hezbollah reaching a boiling point, the meeting seems more urgent than ever.
The smart guess would be an Egyptian delegation, but this remains unconfirmed. The report said the delegation intends to convey the possible ramifications of an escalation in Lebanon, a country that is already in financial crisis.
The Hezbollah-affiliated "al-Manar" TV network referred to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's threats to assassinate Al-Arouri. Lebanese news website Alahed reported that Hamas views Netanyahu's threat as "empty", and that every Israeli attack will be met with an appropriate response.
These reports from Lebanon come amid Palestinian concerns that Israel intends to revert back to a policy of targeted assassinations, with Al-Arouri the prime target. Palestinian terror factions threatened severe escalations of violence if that were to materialize.

Reports indicate that along with their threats, Palestinian factions have taken tangible steps to bolster their security, both in Lebanon as well as the Gaza Strip. The Hezbollah-affiliated al-Akhbar newspaper reported Egyptian concerns and efforts to keep violence from reaching a boiling point and a full-blown military conflict.
The report says that both Israel and Palestinian factions have refused to end IDF incursions and West Bank terror attacks respectively.
