Three people, including a child, were killed in the northern city of Tripoli Wednesday during a new bout of clashes linked to the ongoing war in Syria.Ahmad Khaled Sayyed, 11, died as a result of sniper fire in the largely Sunni Tripoli neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh.Speaking following a meeting with Derbas and Former MP Abdel-Majid Rafei in Tripoli, Rifi said the aim was not only to end the ongoing rounds of clashes, but "to get out of this major cycle".He said there was a plan to revive the port in the northern city, adding that the city had been abandoned for "decades". The renewed efforts to revitalize Tripoli come just a day after a Syrian refugee mother of four set herself on fire at a U.N. registration center in the city, according to witnesses and the UNHCR.
