The commemorative events took place in Beirut and in the villages of southern Lebanon and the Bekaa, between the 14th. and the 16th. of February this year. The commemorative events included military orders of Hezbollah operatives, waving Hezbollah flags, hoisting pictures and figures of the fallen commanders, laying bouquets of flowers on the martyr’s graves, the pledging of allegiance to Hezbollah Secretary General Syed Hassan Nasrallah, and Iranian leaders and the unveiling of new monuments in memory of the fallen commanders.
