The war in Syria is dragging neighbouring Lebanon to the edge of the abyss, and nowhere is the growing chaos more stark than in the second city of Tripoli. Sunni militants aligned with the Syrian rebels frequently clash with fighters from the city’s encircled Alawite minority, who support the Assad regime, in bitter street fighting the country’s weak government is powerless to stop. With the rule of law no longer in effect in Tripoli, warlords like Sunni commander Ziad Allouki are now the city’s real rulers, so VICE hung out with him and his fighters for a week to discover why they’re fighting, and whether the country really is on the brink of civil war.

    I can’t move past that mullet

    Haha I’m sunni and even I think these people are stupidly sectarian. They don’t even probably give a crap about religion it’s like they are just reading lines out of a script. They have to mention that they are Sunni in every sentence and mention that the other guys are alawite. As if that’s gonna appeal to a western audience ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Western audience has a strong anti sectarian tradition that’s why they are becoming irreligious. You really think they’ll support you for saying "I’m Sunni" haha.

    Also isis and all these shitty groups are not even Sunni they are wahhabi/salafi. Which claims to be Sunni but that’s a long debate that you might not be able to understand.

    These ppl should move to Dubai where the economy is good.

    I thought Lebanon was meant to be a permanent safe haven and residence for Christians from this all-in-all political war crisis? Wasn’t that the plan France agreed upon back in the days?



  5. marsell on November 1, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    who else thought this was libya?



  6. Rumun Dutu on November 1, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    9:02, he’s not saying that they should know about the different sects, he’s asking IF they should know about them.



  7. renaldy kharisma on November 1, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    So this is the democracy that they demand after Khadafi’s death?
    Random man with gun, tanks, american soldiers everywhere?

    I can’t believe these monsters just shoot in the streets and just cut the head off a goat in the name of "god". Religion really just covers the logic part of the brain.



  11. Badass Beaver on November 1, 2021 at 7:04 pm

  12. L7 on November 1, 2021 at 7:06 pm

  16. Ryan Lawson on November 1, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    When he was talking about why they fight but also they are the same in the end. โ€œWe are just neighbors with different political viewsโ€ kinda reminds me of whatโ€™s going on in the US rn. Just a matter of time till people take it to the next level and the States look like this



  17. Yassi Youssef on November 1, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    It was like that in 2014,but after that,they found a solution and it isn’t like that anymore. Sunni and Alawites are friends now.

    The Sunni commander is absolutely detestable… As for the Alawites, they seem to be victims of the intolerance of their Sunni neighboors. I pity them. Anyway those fights are so stupid and pointless
