Lebanon: Casualty toll rises as Tripoli clashes intensify

26th Oct 2013

Clashes between the neighborhoods of Jabal Mohsen and Bab al-Tabbaneh in Tripoli continued for a fourth day on Friday, as casualties continued to rise.

At least five people have been killed in the Lebanese city since Monday, AFP reported.

Al-Islami hospital told the Lebanese National News Agency that it was treating up to 10 people injured in the conflict, most with relatively stable conditions. Friday’s Muslim sermon and prayer were the first period of relative quiet the city has experienced in days, as fighting was temporarily halted.

In a call for government action, the former general director of the Lebanese Internal Security Forces, Ashraf al-Rifi, called for an end to the clashes.

“What is happening is unacceptable under any circumstances and must be stopped immediately,” Rifi said in a press release on Friday, echoing condemnations by numerous other Lebanese political figures.

Tripoli has endured sporadic clashes since 2011, as the two-year Syrian conflict heightened tensions in the northern Lebanese city.
