A large number of militants accused of participating in clashes in Tripoli over the last several years have fled to Syria and Iraq to join Daesh (ISIS), sources told The Daily Star. Meanwhile, other suspects held in custody, including those accused that voluntarily turned themselves in, have their court cases stalled with no verdict in sight.In the wings of Tripoli's political theater, various powers are doubling their efforts following the recent terrorist threats against Lebanon. Political figures and parties are keen to mitigate the spread of extremism in the city as they ensure that the dark, ramshackle alleys do not turn into a haven for terrorists or a breeding ground for future extremist militants.Over the last three years, several rounds of fighting have rocked the northern city, 4,500 arrest warrants have been issued and 500 suspects charged with participating in the fighting.Head of the Tripoli Bar Association Fahed Mokaddem called for a quick end to the cases.
