Last week, 21WIRE traveled to South Lebanon to investigate a recent war zone, including a tour of a decommissioned Hezbollah military bunker dug into the side of a mountain in Mleeta, and a journey to another nearby key citadel, Beaufort Castle (Qala’at al-Shaqif) that has changed hands many times from the first Crusades until today, including in 2000 when Hezbollah resistance fighters fought and pushed back the Israeli IDF occupation of South Lebanon.

Listen to this out-take segment from the second half of last week’s live broadcast of the SUNDAY WIRE SHOW from Beirut, Lebanon:
