Tripoli – Lebanon. Every Friday became the day of manifestations in Tripoli. This time, Islamists were protesting for four different reasons. One year after the death of young man with the bullets of the Lebanese army in Bab el Tebbaneh during clashes, his “friends” are asking for justice to rule. In addition, Sheikh Salem El Rafei, of the Salafists, was demanding the release of the long-ago detained Islamists who were imprisoned because they slaughtered members of the Lebanese army and participated in the Nahr El Bared confrontations of Fatah Al Islam (a group of radical terrorists). The third reason was the repetitive shooting and shelling from the Syrian border on Wadi Khaled (Lebanese region near the borders) which got complete silence as a response from the Lebanese government until the moment. Finally, a request to expel the Syrian ambassador in Lebanon joined the well orchestrated manifestation which had no confrontations whatsoever to affect its occurrence. Photos taken on July 13, 2012.
