Hezbollah and the Internal Security Forces have reached an agreement intended to ease tensions in the south by exempting the party from vehicle checks and reining in the Resistance Brigades, a militia affiliated with Hezbollah, security sources told The Daily Star.The agreement, brokered by Samir Shehadeh, the ISF's chief in south Lebanon, and Wafiq Safa, a senior Hezbollah security official, was accompanied by new security measures announced by local authorities to curb renewed threats of attacks in the city. The measures closely followed a high-profile meeting between Safa, Hezbollah's liaison chief and senior security official, Shehadeh.Safa also promised to rein in the activities of four members of the Hezbollah-affiliated "Resistance Brigades," who were involved in recent disputes with ISF officers stationed in the neighborhood of Villat.The sources added that the visit by such a senior security official in Hezbollah and his meeting with Shehadeh is a political victory for the Future Movement.
