Syrian Violence in Lebanon Requires Military Response

Lebanon has been forced to send troops into Tripoli, due to violence between Syrians, in the city.

At least ten people had been killed over the last few days, leaving the government little decision but to crack down.

Luckily for Tripoli the military’s presence has caused an automatic ceasefire, with none willing to start that kind of fight.

Fighting has been between Sunnis who support the uprising, and Alawites who support the Syrian regime.

Over the last few months at least twenty deaths in Tripoli have been accounted as being related to the Syrian conflict.
