The Abdullah bin Masoud Mosque in Tripoli's neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh is now under the control of local sheikhs after supporters of two notorious militants withdrew from the building following a settlement Sunday, military and security sources told The Daily Star Tuesday. The armed supporters of Shadi Mawlawi and Ousama Mansour had been using the mosque, which is located in Abdul Hamid Alley in the restive Bab al-Tabbaneh neighborhood, as a base for operations, blocking routes leading to the mosque and installing surveillance cameras around the building. According to a high ranking military source, the Army will not use military force to enter Bab al-Tabbaneh and arrest the two now that a settlement has been reached.
