The international siege on the Lebanese Hezbollah militia promoted the party to ask for support of its Lebanese fighters on billboards and posters on Wednesday.

Hezbollah, which relies on Iranian funding and is accused by the US Treasury of illicit smuggling and trafficking, is suffering from a financial crisis that has led to the launch of a number of fundraising campaigns to equip its fighters.

The financial crises of Hezbollah made the militia demand support of the fighters through billboards and photos at Beirut International Airport’s road and other roads.

The Lebanese daily Al Nahar quoted a Hezbollah official saying that the aim of these campaigns are to equip fighters with uniforms and gears.

According to the newspaper each supporter pays about $1,000 instead of fighting, similar to paying money instead of army recruitment.

Hezbollah suffers from a number of US and international sanctions affecting its institutions, and its supporters in Africa and Europe.
