The resistance and Mleeta share a special story, a story of
adornment, of love, and of a place's remembrance.
Ever since the first withdrawal of the Israeli occupation in
1985, Mleeta became an advanced strategic and military
position of the Islamic resistance against the enemy's
established buffer zone. The fall of Mleeta into the enemy's
hands meant the fall of the backlines of the resistance, the
villages of Iqlim al Tuffah, as well as the besieging of
Mount Safi, the primary and main stronghold of the
resistance at the time.
Mleeta played the role of a particular school of faith and
jihad. It became the springboard of thousands of Mujahedeen
who executed thousands of military missions inside the
Mleeta is the story of a rising mountain and the
determination of strong men. Mleeta was built by the
Mujahedeen with faith, endurance and free will. They
treasured behind each rock and tree-trunk the story of a
martyr or casualty.
