Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah is tightening security procedures for fear that Islamic State and the Al-Qaida-affiliated group Nusra Front will try to assassinate him, the London-based pan-Arab daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported on Tuesday.

The Hezbollah chief is reportedly concerned that the radical Sunni Islamist rivals would seek to punish him for aiding forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad in the five-year civil war.
