Radicalized by Hezbollah
Since the Hamas terror attacks of October 7th last year and the consequent war in Gaza, tensions have risen between Israel and Lebanon. The powerful organization Hezbollah, considered a terrorist organization by many countries, holds sway in many areas of Lebanon. Its fighters have been firing rockets into Israel, while Israel has responded with its own attacks.
DW’s Senior International Correspondent Fanny Facsar went to the district of Khandak El Ghamik in central Beirut where a combination of social, economic and religious factors have kept Hezbollah and their affiliates in control – despite the risk of war with Israel.
