This chapter surveys the development, stage by stage, of the conflict between Israel and Hizbollah, from the movement’s inception in the early 1980s through today. Hizbollah’s military profile will be addressed in its twin aspects - primarily as a guerrilla force in ‘resistance’ against Israel’s presence across southern Lebanon, but also as an agent of acts of violence falling within the definition of terrorism.
