Despite the recent suffering faced by the people of Tripoli, life seems to go on. The army and police are constantly trying to keep things under control, especially in areas close to the airport and oil fields, which have seen an increase in militia presence.

Though some people believe that the situation is relatively stable, others describe life as total misery, with the proliferation of armed militias creating a sense of fear and insecurity among the city’s citizens.

Strike over kidnapped soldiers in Sinai
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
21 May 2013

Egyptian security forces continue to block the Rafah Crossing border, which leads to the Gaza Strip, for the fourth day in protest at the recent incident of kidnap.

Seven Egyptian soldiers were kidnapped in the Sinai Peninsula on Thursday, including a member of the armed forces, four port security officers and two state security officers.

The Egyptian police angered by the kidnapping of seven of their colleagues stressed that they won’t open the crossing until the kidnapped soldiers are freed. Security forces at El-Ouga crossing, bordering Israel, began a strike also on Sunday.

The scope of the protests expanded in northern Sinai on Monday after Central Security Forces conscripts at five police stations have gone on strike to demand the release of the Egyptian soldiers kidnapped in the region.

North Sinai Traffic Department workers join the strike against the kidnap.

Egypt's army sent dozens of armored vehicles and personnel carriers across the Suez Canal into North Sinai early on Monday.

Major-General Ahmed Wasfy, commander of Egypt's Second Army (a regional sub-division of the country's armed forces) later arrived in Al-Arish city in northern Sinai with a delegation of military leaders.

The move comes as speculation grows that force could be used to rescue seven Egyptian soldiers kidnapped last week.

President Mohamed Morsi's office released a statement late on Sunday vowing to secure the release of the soldiers swiftly and safely and in a manner that would maintain the state's prestige.

The statement was released after President Morsi met with the Minister of Defense, Minister of Interior, Head of the General Intelligence, Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces, Chief of Operations of the Armed Forces and other army officials.

A security source said the kidnappers have demanded the release of Islamist militants detained for almost two years.

The militants, who allegedly belong to Tawhid wal-Jihad, were convicted of killing five security officers and one civilian during attacks in June/July 2011 on an Al-Arish city police station and a North Sinai branch of the Bank of Alexandria.

Early on Monday, unidentified gunmen stormed an Egyptian security base in the Sinai Peninsula and exchanged gunfire with forces inside the base. The attack did not result in any casualties.

President Morsi said that "all options" remained open to secure the release of the kidnapped soldiers, stressing that Egypt would "not be blackmailed" by the captors.

Lebanese army forces were deployed immediately to the area to contain the situation, though gunfire could be heard throughout the day.

The clashes erupted when Sheikh Al-Assir and his supporters, opponents of Hezbollah and Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, demanded the removal of Hezbollah banners from Sidon by Sunday. In defiance, Hezbollah Shiite supporters continued preparing the banners for massive rituals to be held late November.

The sectarian clashes add tension to the situation in Lebanon folloeing the assassination of a senior intelligence official in October.
