People who know Jawad Nasrallah, however, disputed the State Department's description of his role within Hezbollah, with one resident of Beirut's southern suburbs saying Jawad Nasrallah is not even a senior official within the group."People respect him because he is a humble person and the son of Sayyed Nasrallah," he said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was speaking about matters related to the group's security.He said that Jawad is religiously moderate, unlike some other members of the group, and likes to listen to music. A Palestinian senior security official said Hezbollah stopped its activity in the occupied West Bank and Gaza after the second intifada, which ended in 2005 .Although his rank and role within the group have remained ambiguous, the round-faced Jawad is not the reclusive type, as senior Hezbollah commanders tend to be.
