Hezbollah and the Lebanese Army were on high alert Thursday after rumors circulated that two suicide bombers were planning to attack Beirut's southern suburbs.The heightened security comes two days after a suspected suicide bomber killed four people and wounded scores of others in the southern suburb of Haret Hreik, where Hezbollah enjoys wide support.Conversely, traffic was unusually light on Hadi Nasrallah highway and other parts of the southern suburbs.Residents of the southern suburbs circulated WhatsApp messages Thursday claiming that Hezbollah had asked residents not to pass through the area linking the Hadi Nasrallah highway to the Bir al-Abed neighborhood for three hours.Radical Syrian rebel groups have claimed most of the attacks in the southern suburbs, describing them as retaliation for Hezbollah's military involvement alongside President Bashar Assad's troops in Syria.
