NNA - "What Tripoli witnessed on the eve of Eid al-Fitr is excruciatingly painful, and the most hurtful part is the persistence of some in offending the city, its people, history, roots and culture by accusing it of being an incubator of extremism and terrorism," regretted former PM Najib Miqati via his Twitter account on Saturday.

He added: "What happened in Tripoli will be an opportunity for us all to emphasize the fulfillment of the commitments made towards the city and to achieve the development agreed upon with PM Saad Hariri, especially as Tripoli occupies a priority position in this consensus."

"We hope that all those who expressed solidarity with Tripoli would translate that through supporting its essential and vital projects," Mikati corroborated.
