Me Against My Brother
This story followed the conflict in Tripoli, Lebanon, from 2012-2013.
Lebanon is surrounded by conflict, and trust is in short supply.
While Sunnis and Alawites in Tripoli have been in conflict for years, since the start of the war in Syria, the situation has gone downhill. Battles shut down Tripoli for weeks at a time, killing dozens and wounding hundreds.
Physical damage is present in every area of the city. Bullet holes sprout from buildings and living with the chaos has become normal. The damage extends to the people as well; to the psyche of citizens in Tripoli, as years of physical conflict and mistrust have left most with deep prejudices against their neighbors.
Both sides claim the conflict in Tripoli will continue, even if the war in Syria comes to an end. The fear of growing hostility is not unfounded. The Alawi-Sunni feud that began during the civil war has never completely calmed, and neighborhood clashes could, with the right influence, easily drag Lebanon down into its own civil war once again.
