At the start of the game Special Force by Hezbollah, an Israeli tank explodes. As you advance through the game you experience a series of training activities including shooting practice at Ariel Sharon amidst the burning of an Israeli flag. When the game was released in 2003, it was a big hit in the south of Beirut.

Special Force is a first-person shooter military video game, published by the group Hezbollah[1], created using the Genesis 3D engine. The game is set in a 3D environment, in which the player takes the role of a Hezbollah combatant fighting the IDF. A message on the cover of the game’s box says "the designers of Special Force are very proud to provide you with this special product, which embodies objectively the defeat of the Israeli enemy and the heroic actions taken by heroes in Lebanon." It adds: "Be a partner in the victory. Fight, resist and destroy your enemy in the game of force and victory."

Mahmoud Rayya, an official from the Hezbollah bureau, said "This game is resisting the Israeli occupation through the media. [...] In a way, Special Force offers a mental and personal training for those who play it, allowing them to feel that they are in the shoes of the fighters."
