Al-Noor Square has witnessed in the last months numerous demonstrations and sit-ins organized by Tripoli (Northern Lebanon) Sunni Extremists in support of the Syrian rebellion. A monumental sculpture inscribing the name of Allah centers the Square. Underneath the sculpture is written, "Tripoli, the fortress of Muslims, welcomes you."
