At least 12 people were killed and 100 wounded in the northern city since Saturday as Sunni Muslim fought with Alawite supporters of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

The Salafist movement in northern Lebanon warned, “We will work on foiling this decision politically for the sake of Lebanon, its security and stability.”
