Hezbullah on the move

London-based Arabic daily Asharq Al-Awsat reported Friday that Hezbullah is moving its headquarters out of the Dahiya section in southern Beirut to 'elsewhere in Lebanon.'
All of the organization's offices, including its "security compound" are to be relocated.

During the Second Lebanon War last summer the Israel Air Force bombed the Dahiya neighborhood in an attempt to destroy the Hezbollah command center.

Asharq Al-Awsat said Hezbollah plans on turning the area occupied currently by their headquarters into a public park.

The whole Dahiya quarter has of late been undergoing extensive renovation, however, Hezbollah has imposed a blackout on news of the exact work being done there.

According to the newspaper report, the relocation will be completed by "the first day of 2009," some two and a half years after the Second Lebanon War.

The offices where Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah receives visitors will also be moved. Nasrallah himself will relocate to a place only known to those responsible for his personal security.
If he lives that long.
