Hezbollah (Arabic: حزب الله‎ ḥizbu-'llāh, literally "party of God") is a Shi'a Islamic political and paramilitary organisation based in Lebanon.

Hezbollah was founded in the 1980s. Its leaders were inspired by Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran, and its militia forces were trained and organized by a contingent of Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

Hezbollah's 1985 manifesto listed its three main goals as "putting an end to any colonialist entity" in Lebanon, bringing the Phalangists to justice for "the crimes they [had] perpetrated," and the establishment of an Islamic regime in Lebanon.

Military forces Edit

Hezbollah has a military branch known as Al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya (The Islamic Resistance). The full-time armed cadre numbers approximately 1000 fighters, with a part-time militia of approx. 6000 additional fighters and support personnel.

Hezbollah receives extensive military support from the Syrian military. This includes 122mm and 220mm Katyusha rockets - a favored weapon for cross-border attacks against civilian targets in Israel.
