On Location Video: Syria threatens Lebanon’s fragile peace
July 30, 2013 - 11:32am

TRIPOLI, Lebanon — A precarious calm marks Ramadan in Bab-el-Tabene, a poor Lebanese neighborhood just 20 miles from the Syrian border. But the scars of war are everywhere.

Battles between Sunnis and nearby Alawites have become a grim routine over the last four years.

This is more than a fight between two neighborhoods. The Alawites, from the same sect as the ruling regime in Damascus, support the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad. The Sunnis support the rebels.

And the conflict in Syria is fanning the flames of sectarian tension here and throughout Lebanon, a nation that still bears the scars of religious turmoil.
