Head of Dar al-Fatwa in Tripoli Sheikh Mohammed Imam demanded on Tuesday that a “detailed security plan” be devised for the northern city in order to protect places of worship and public places in light of the recent bombings in the city.

He rejected in a statement after a spiritual meeting at Dar al-Fatwa in Tripoli the phenomenon of “autonomous security and possession of weapons away from the authority of the state.”

He called for raising awareness among the people over their security, suggesting that they refrain from heading to places of worship in their vehicles.

Moreover, Imam demanded that the widespread possession of motorcycles in Tripoli be controlled, while noting the increase in apartment and car theft in the city.

In addition, the cleric condemned the “irresponsible” acts committed by some citizens against security forces the night the bombings took place in Tripoli.

Forty-five people were killed and at least 800 were wounded in twin bombings in Tripoli on Friday that targeted the Taqwa and al-Salam mosques.

Word of advice.
If they bring you those so called "explosives detecting equipment" that Charbel is asking for - RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.
