Report: Alawite military leader shot dead in Lebanon's Tripoli

Published: 02.20.14, 12:58 / Israel News

Two people were killed in the Lebanese city of Tripoli on Thursday including a military commander from the Alawite minority shot dead on his way to work, security sources said.

 

Long-standing tensions between Alawites – a sect derived from Shiite Islam – and Sunni Muslims in the Mediterranean city have been exacerbated by the increasingly sectarian war in neighboring Syria, leading to frequent bouts of armed conflict. Syria's President Bashar Assad is an Alawite and the rebels fighting to topple him are overwhelmingly Sunni. (Reuters)
