The competent security agencies uncovered the identity of the person who was behind the video threatening Caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel, al-Joumhouria newspaper reported on Thursday.

A security source rejected to unveil the name of the culprit until he is brought to justice, noting that a permission was granted to pursue him on charges of destabilizing civil peace in the northern city of Tripoli,incitement and sedition.

“I've heard so many threats in my life... May god forgive him,” Charbel told the newspaper.

He pointed out the security forces are carrying out investigations to “deal with this phenomena.”

On Tuesday, LBCI aired a one-minute video for an unknown man threatening Charbel over a statement he issued that “if the farce in Tripoli didn't end then the army is ready to engage in another battle like the one in Nahr al-Bared.”

The Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon was almost totally destroyed during a months-long conflict between the Lebanese army and the al-Qaida-inspired group Fatah al-Islam in 2007.

At least 10 people have been killed and 100 others wounded in clashes between the rival Tripoli neighborhoods of Bab al-Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen since Saturday.

The fighting in the city is linked to the war raging in neighboring Syria. Bab al-Tabbaneh district, which is majority Sunni, and Jabal Mohsen, whose residents are from Syrian President Bashar Assad's sect, have been engaged in severe gunbattles since the revolt against him in March 2011.

Tensions soared in the city in August when twin car bombings hit Sunni mosques and left hundreds of casualties.

The latest round of violence erupted last week when Jabal Mohsen residents were shot in their feet in vengeful sectarian attacks.

Am I the only one who finds that his slightly effeminate voice doesn't let me take the threat seriously?

There is no need to reveal his identity. After all, one Sanni is like all other Sannis. Why, you ask? It has been scientifically proven that all Sannis are affected by the genetic mutation known as Sannis Lunaticus Berserki, and its symptoms can be exhibited anytime and even without a trigger. takfir
