Crossing conflicts in Syria Street: the story

341 views

Published on

It is a journey through different conflicts intertwined with the 40-year-old battle between two neighbouring districts in Tripoli - Lebanon:
- Bab al-Tabbaneh - a Sunni/Salafi stronghold
- Jabal Mohsen - the Alawite enclave that overlooks it

At the centre of it: Syria Street
- the vantage point from which we can observe and understand local, regional and global conflicts
- the access point of our story

It is a war between neighbours
- that fight each other since the Lebanese civil war (1975 – 1990) for control over the town
- whose destiny has always been influenced by the relation with Syria which occupied Lebanon from 1976 to 2005

It is a war influenced by the Syrian conflict.
- where Salafi militias are fighting the Damascus Alawite regime
- and which worsened given the massive arrival of Syrian refugees in Lebanon - more than 1.1 million - since the local Alawites feel more threatened by a growing Sunni presence

A war that has global consequences.
- The self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) is trying to extend its power over Tripoli in order to acquire access to the Mediterranean sea.
- Tripoli is also the stage of the deadly competition between IS and al-Qaeda for the leadership of the global jihadi movement

It is a story told by the people involved
- by walking down the streets of Tripoli you will discover the conflicts through the eyes of ordinary people and their leaders.
