Lebanese security and military commanders have received reports that Lebanon has entered "a dangerous stage" as a result of developments in the region, namely the nearly 4-year-old war in Syria, security sources said.The PSP and Hezbollah are staging joint night patrols to guard the Aramoun-Khaldeh area, south of Beirut, especially the "Doha Hills" area, which is adjacent to the town of Naameh, where the role of extremist groups is rising, posing a threat to the entire area, the sources said.Hezbollah has an effective presence in Naameh through a number of people integrated into the "Resistance Brigades," a group linked to the Shiite party, the sources said.According to the sources, the influential parties in Druze-dominated areas – the PSP, the Democratic Party, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party and Al-Tawheed Party – are cooperating to protect predominantly Druze villages and towns.
