This 3D animated clip of al-Khiam, a real village in southern Lebanon, illustrates how Hezbollah uses the civilian village to store weapons, thus effectively turning it into a military base. al-Khiam is just one of over 100 villages that Hezbollah uses in this manner.

In 2006, during the Second Lebanon War, Israel successfully targeted and destroyed much of Hezbollah's weaponry (specifically rockets), since they stored it in open areas. In the four years since the Second Lebanon War, Hezbollah has employed the tactic of storing their weaponry inside villages - using the residents as human shields.

Essentially, what in 2006 was an ad hoc tactic, has now been institutionalized on an extensive scale across south Lebanon. This constitutes a systematic use of human shields at an unheard of level, and violates UN Resolution 1701.
