Hezbollah has begun preparations for Friday's rally to mark the ninth anniversary of what the party calls its "divine victory" against Israel in the summer 2006 war. This year, Hezbollah will hold the ceremony at Wadi Hujair in southern Lebanon. The valley became famous during the 2006 war, when Hezbollah destroyed numerous Israeli Merkava tanks there with Russian Kornet anti-tank missiles. Hezbollah's media official in the south, Haidar Diqmaq, told The Daily Star that the party had chosen Wadi Hujair as the site of this year's ceremony because it symbolized resistance, even before the birth of Hezbollah.
