A visit by a senior Hezbollah official has stoked fears that the party is worried about possible terror attacks in the south, political sources said Tuesday.Wafiq Safa, Hezbollah's top security official, held several meetings with politicians and security officials in Sidon in the last couple of days, prompting questions about the impetus behind a visit by such a senior member of the party.Political sources said Hezbollah was worried about attacks in south Lebanon, a concern that has risen with the increase in hostility between Saudi Arabia and Qatar over the latter's support for the Muslim Brotherhood, and disagreements between the March 8 and 14 political blocs over the Cabinet's policy statement.The sources said Hezbollah disclosed intelligence related to possible security threats to officials in Sidon.The attacks have mostly targeted areas traditionally associated with Hezbollah.
