Clashes in Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli on Tuesday (August 21st) left at least four people dead and over 30 wounded, Lebanon's National News Agency reported.
Two of those killed, Lebanese citizens Sara Hussein and Ahmad Hassan Hammoud, died in clashes between people from the neighbourhoods of Bab al-Tebbaneh and Jabal Mohsen, the news agency said.
Jabal Mohsen is reportedly populated mainly by supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, while residents of Bab al-Tebbaneh support the opposition.
At least 10 soldiers are among the wounded.
In response to the fighting, Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati called on Tripoli residents "not to allow anyone to transform you into ammunition for someone else's war", AFP reported.
