"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Tripoli’s alleyway commanders have no safe haven in new security plan- Al-Akhbar

A new security plan for Tripoli started on Sunday amid a cautious atmosphere and continued attacks on the army. Will the plan succeed this time, or will it meet the same fate as its predecessors?

With the exception of a homemade explosive device that the security services dismantled near the municipal stadium in Tripoli, no major incident occurred in Tripoli on Sunday. But despite the decision of the so-called alleyway commanders – the leaders of the various militant groups in Tripoli’s impoverished neighborhoods – to abide by a truce, apprehension reigns in the northern city.
