Two videos, allegedly of Alawi fighters in Tripoli, have been posted online. Minus the guns, these guys look like they’re ready to go clubbing (this kind , not this kind ).
The first video is of Alawi youth firing their guns into the air on their home turf of the Jabal Muhsin neighborhood of Tripoli.
The second is of Alawis firing into the Sunni neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbana.
These clips should give readers a greater sense of what’s boiling in Tripoli. And you can see why Sunni militants in Bab al-Tabbana are worried about the better-armed Alawis.
