Hizballah has leveraged its worldwide network of members and sympathizers to secure financial, logistical, and other types of support. Procurement of goods ranging from weapons to dual-use items (e.g., night-vision goggles and clock timers) is a critical component of these efforts. In Canada, Hizballah has long maintained a robust network of agents able to purchase such items on the open market and send them to Lebanon. Matthew Levitt explores this network in depth in a chapter from a recently published compilation on violent extremism in Canada.
