There are many unknowns surrounding how Hezbollah operates in Lebanon and across the region. In a report, Al-Arabiya’s Al-Hadath news channel cited a Hezbollah defector who revealed secret information about the militia and its military map for Lebanon.
Here is what he said:
Hezbollah has weapons stored in every areaof Lebanon
According to the defector, if an arms depot was attacked, Hezbollah has thousands of others, including but not limited to the 3 arms depots in Jnah previously exposed by the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Hezbollah has residential military compounds
The defector reportedly indicated that these compounds are located in Jiyeh’s coastal side, a place south of Beirut known for its attractive beach resorts.
Hezbollah has tunnels between cities in Lebanon
The Iran-backed party has tunnels running between Beirut and South Lebanon.
Hezbollah divided South Lebanon
Hezbollah reportedly sectioned South Lebanon into two sides divided by the Litani river and which it names as the Badr Unit and the Nasr Unit (north of the Litani river).
Hezbollah owns multiple properties and lands in Christian-majority areas
These properties and lands are reportedly registered in the names of certain members of the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) as a cover-up. The Hezbollah-allied FPM is a party founded by Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun and led by his son-in-law Gebran Bassil.
An international secretive intelligence agency works for Hezbollah
Equipment for Hezbollah is transported by members belonging to “Unit 900” who hold special military cards issued by a top-secret intelligence agency that is close to the militia. These members carry out tasks that Hezbollah categorizes as “external”, meaning outside of Lebanon and the party’s territorial influence.
