The ambassador visited the site in south Lebanon and "expressed his admiration at Hezbollah's great achievement for Lebanon, at liberating the land and the people," Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV reported on February 28 according to a transcript provided by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute).

According to the website of the Mleeta Resistance Tourist Landmark-Lebanon, the site is a natural museum that seeks "to preserve the places where the Mujahideen lived, giving people the chance to be acquainted with the style of the unique experience of the Islamic resistance against the Israeli enemy."

The Mleeta site also contributes to the country's tourism, said the website.

The report also said that a delegation from the Egyptian Workers Union visited the Mleeta monument for jihadi tourism and expressed admiration for the Shi'ite organization's capabilities.

The delegation members showed their support for Hezbollah and that its victories are a source of pride for all Arabs, according to the Al-Manar report.
