[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As part of his press conference, the British Ambassador to Lebanon, Chris Rambling stated that Britain continues to view Hezbollah’s military wing as a terrorist organization, despite their participation in the battles against ISIS. Moreover, he stated that the British remain concerned over Hezbollah’s continual arsenal development, highlighted by Nasrallah’s last speech on November 10th.
Though this is a very important announcement, Hezbollah must be designated entirely as a terrorist organization, not only its military wing. Its ability to develop the military infrastructure goes hand in hand and relies on Hezbollah’s social wing in indoctrinating its ideology, influence, and essentially control villages in south Lebanon.
The photo of the Chaqra village indicates the connection between the military and social wings in Hezbollah. The red squares in the picture indicate Hezbollah’s military storages, hidden near schools and mosques (in blue) for purposes of human shield. Without the social relation Hezbollah conducts with the residents of South Lebanon, it couldn’t have been able to use civilian buildings for the protection of its weapons.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]*Photo posted originally by @IDFSpokesperson.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
