The Washington Institute for Near East Policy on 3 August produced an interactive map (and videos) and saying that Lebanese Hezbollah is a global, multifaceted organisation, engaged in a wide range of endeavours, including overt social and political activities in Lebanon, military activities in Lebanon, Syria, and throughout the Middle East, and covert militant, criminal, and terrorist activities around the world.  Hezbollah is very public about its social and political activities, but the group goes to great lengths to conceal its covert and illicit pursuits. The Institute has produced an interactive multimedia tool, the map is searchable by category, location, timeline, and text keywords. Each entry includes photographs or videos, a summary of the event, geographic and/or thematic linkages to other related entries in the map, as well as primary-source documents. As a “living” project, the digital interface will be updated as more information and documentation becomes available.
