Army deploys in north Lebanon after deadly clashes

The Lebanese army finally began its deployment after yet another round of deadly clashes between rival neighborhoods in the Northern Lebanese city of Tripoli. At least ten people were killed and tens wounded including army soldiers as pro and anti Syrian groups battled it out.

Lebanon politicians have urged for an end to the hostilities between rival pro and anti Syrian groups amid increased fears regarding a spillover of the Syrian unrest into Lebanon.

These developments have been accompanied by other dangerous sectarian signs. Religious figures in Tripoli have called for the establishment of a Sunni military council in the city. These same religious figures have resorted to sectarian slogans. "Coming to the aid of the Sunni's brothers in Syria" in reference to the Syrian opposition is a common term.
