A Lebanese Army source Tuesday denied reports that the military establishment was planning to restrict access to Beirut's southern suburbs to only seven entrances to prevent the entry of rigged cars.The source said there were over 100 entrances to the southern suburbs, all monitored by checkpoints manned by the Lebanese Army, Internal Security Forces and General Security personnel.The source said that side roads leading to the southern suburbs were closed following the initial explosions last summer, before the Lebanese Army and other security bodies took charge of checkpoints.The sources said the Lebanese Army, the ISF and General Security were coordinating with Hezbollah in order to preserve security in the southern suburbs.
