A bus trip to the exhibition in Mleeta, 85 km south of Beirut, costs 40,000 Lebanese pounds (20 euros). One of the highlights is a battle simulation in the forest.

A few weeks before the official opening on Tuesday, the site invited 500 students to show them “the success of the Islamic resistance” from its creation in 1982 to what it describes as the "defeat" of Israel in 2000.

Mohammad Chehadeh, a law student from the neighbouring village of Ain Boussoir, took part in the excursion. Here are his photos:
