Three People Missing in Tripoli

Two Lebanese citizens and a Palestinian from Tripoli’s Bab al-Tabbaneh neighborhood have disappeared, al-Akhbar daily reported Thursday.

It said worried parents headed to hospitals and resorted to the security forces to find out the whereabouts of the men.

Police have no information about the three men except for finding the ID of one of the missing and the motorcycle of another in Tripoli’s Mina district, the newspaper added.

Bab al-Tabbaneh residents are mainly from the Alawite community allied with Hizbullah and Syria. In the past, they have clashed with Tripoli’s Jabal Mohsen residents who are Sunnis.
