Even as the Army was entering the depths of Bab al-Tabbaneh, conducting raids, confiscating weaponry and apprehending dozens of wanted suspects, many of the prominent militia leaders involved in the recent fighting in Tripoli had already disappeared.The disappearance of the militia leaders has put Tripoli back on the brink, with the growing threat of another round of fighting erupting at any second depending on the political situation.Security information suggests that the Army's First Deployment Regiment is executing a delicate plan to apprehend unknown antagonists who continue to disrupt the peace with stun grenades, as well as overseeing raids in a number of places reported to be harboring wanted militia leaders. According to a high-ranking security source in North Lebanon, it is necessary to differentiate between the different militia leaders, who fall into three distinct groups.These factors are believed to have been the main reason people such as Allouki, Khodr Masri, Amer Arish, Jihad Dandashi and others became militia leaders.
