BEIRUT: Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah urged Lebanese Friday to exercise vigilance in order to avert strife in Lebanon, warning that security incidents could strike in part of the country.

“We urge all the Lebanese to watch out and be cautious, not only those in places [where Hezbollah maintains a presence] but all the areas, because all the people could be in danger and incidents could occur at any time during this phase,” Nasrallah said.

The resistance group and areas it maintains a strong presence in have been targeted in recent weeks.

The group’s military involvement in Syria has been widely cited as the main reason behind the attacks.
