Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Friday sought to reassure jittery Lebanese the security situation in Lebanon is under control, days after a wave of suspected Daesh) (ISIS) suicide attacks raised fears of a new violent phase in the spillover of Syria's 5-year-old war into Lebanon.While calling for a national strategy to fight terrorism, Nasrallah defended Hezbollah's "pre-emptive attacks" against Daesh and Nusra Front militants holed up in Syrian towns near the border with Lebanon, saying these attacks had reduced the threat of suicide bombers. Nasrallah expressed solidarity with the residents of the northeastern village of Al-Qaa, pledging to protect the Bekaa region from future suicide attacks. He said the eight suicide bombers who attacked Al-Qaa in two waves Monday, killing five people and wounding more than 30 others, had intentionally targeted the village. Nasrallah said investigations suggested that the eight suicide bombers did not come from Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon, but from the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal, only a few kilometers southeast from Al-Qaa.
