The Abyss: Holds a structural scenic display over a distance of 3500 m2, and lies to the west of the landmark, symbolizing the defeat and fading of the occupation. This exhibit has been formed of armored vehicles and weapons that were left behind by the Israeli enemy and its collaborators. The resistance started gaining these booties in 1982 until the July war of 2006. At the center of the abyss is the "Merkava Mark 4" tank, the pride of the Israeli military industry, sunk in dirt with its muzzle knotted, indicating the neutralization of the Israeli sophisticated military machine in the fight against the will and steady faith of the resistance fighters.
The Pathway: A rugged bushy trail where thousands of Mujahedeen had positioned during the years of occupation. From there, they launched to execute military operations against the opposing enemy outposts, reaching the occupied buffer zone. This trail demonstrates different combative scenes of the resistance fighters on a slope of 250 meters in length.
The Cave: One of the posts that was built by the resistance fighters for shelter. It was dug in rotation by more than 1000 freedom fighters over a span of 3 years. It is 200 meters deep and holds different chambers and provisions. More than 7000 resistance fighters had garrisoned in that post.
The Outlook: A novel area that overlooks the villages and cities of Iqlim al Tuffah, Zahrani, Nabatiyeh, Saida, Sour and the areas that were liberated by the resistance in 1985.
Line of Fire: Pieces of the resistance weapons are displayed along this trail that ascends a distance of 200 meters. It shows how the resistance had developed its military structure since 1982, blending old combat methods and techniques with new ones to innovate its special academy. It drastically changed the equilibrium of the military science.
Liberation Square: Forms an open space for gathering and resting, with different models of the resistance weapons placed along its sides. A wall rests at its front as a niche with a glassy panel at its center, carved with selected words of the secretary general of Hezbollah, with which he addressed the people during the July war of 2006.
