NABATIEH, Lebanon: Police on Tuesday took over checkpoints manned by civilian members from Hezbollah in Nabatieh, south Lebanon, and enhanced security measures there.

About five checkpoints at the entrances of Nabatieh were handed over to members of the Internal Security Forces, who carried out inspections on cars and trucks arriving in the southern city.

Hezbollah had boosted security measures in the south and capital in response to a series of deadly car bombings that targeted the group’s stronghold in the southern suburbs of Beirut.

As part of a security plan by the Interior Ministry, Hezbollah abandoned last week checkpoints it had set up in the southern suburbs of the capital.
