Tripoli est régulièrement frappée par des affrontements armés entre deux quartiers. D'un côté Bab el Tabbeneh à majorité sunnite et pro-opposition syrienne. De l'autre, Jabal Mohsen, à majorité alaouite et pro-régime.
Mais les racines du problème remontent à la guerre civile libanaise
A grand ceremony was held on Sunday, October 21, in Beirut for the burial of Lebanese intelligence chief Wissam al-Hassan, who was killed in a car bomb explosion in Beirut’s Ashrafiyeh neighborhood along with seven others and upwards of a hundred of injured.
Angry civilians attended the funeral procession carrying banners and posters of Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah and Prime Minister Najib Mikati who many believe are responsible for the assassination.
Al-Hassan was buried next to late PM Rafik al-Hariri who was similarly assassinated in 2005.
The massive congregation turned into a protest calling for immediate government resignation.
Mikati showed readiness to resign after the bombing but President Michel Suleiman convinced him not to at such a critical time.
After the funeral, clashes erupted between security men and angry protestors who raised banners of the Syrian opposition group Future Movement, while others and tried to break into the Cabinet headquarters in Beirut.
Security forces tried to disperse the protestors by firing teargas canisters, and other means, which led to several injuries.
Analysts warn against a spark of civil war in Lebanon which is already undergoing political turmoil.
