In other words, it has both negative and positive sides, the negative side is the reduction of domestic power and the loss of capacity, and the positive sign is the emergence of groups, parties and movements that can have a large-scale management capability in Lebanon.In the meantime, Hezbollah can be considered as a strong and active activist in the country, calling for pragmatic tendencies in political power. This movement has shown that it can both strengthen the military and social and political realms. The question is: How did Hezbollah affect Lebanon's political structure during 2006-2018?
