Syrians watch football in area controlled by Hezbollah, near Beirut’s Armenian quarter. Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy entrenched in southern Lebanon, has fought successfully alongside the Assad regime in Syria, despite Lebanon’s official policy of neutrality. The spillover from the war resulted in an ongoing ISIS militancy in north-eastern region and a multi-million Syrian influx..
