Hizbullah has added displays of new missiles to a terrorism theme park in Lebanon which encourages children to play with anti-aircraft guns and climb on armored personnel vehicles.
The Iran-backed terror organization unveiled exhibits featuring SA-7 and SA-14 anti-aircraft missiles as well as a new section no military terrain vehicles, according to Hadashot 2.
The weapons featured in the new exhibits went into use during the Second Lebanon War.
There is also a new section in the terror theme park praising Hizbullah’s downing of an Israeli Yasur transport helicopter in 2006 during the Second Lebanon War which resulted in all 5 of the helicopter’s crew members being killed, the report said.
Hizbullah also reportedly plans to feature at the park various exercises for children aged 6 to 18 with the goal of educating “young people in the country and teach them about the goals and achievements of the resistance” against Israel.
Children are also encouraged to play at pretending to aim anti-aircraft guns by raising and lowering them, and to climb on overturned armored personnel carriers.
What the terror group calls the Tourist Landmark of the Resistance, also known as Museum for Resistance Tourism, opened on May 25, 2010, marking the 10th anniversary of the Israeli withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000.
Hizbullah said it plans to further expand the park by adding swimming pools, spas, playgrounds, hotels and camping areas so that people “can come here and spend their vacations.”
