It goes without saying that Lebanon has been highly affected by the civil war in neighboring Syria, with the country's northern capital Tripoli transformed into a battlefield due to violent clashes between supporters and opponents of President Bashar Assad. But even though a security plan to calm the situation was implemented last month, Tripoli is still in dire straits.
