I just came back to Beirut from a trip to Tripoli, northern Lebanon. After the loss of government area's in West-Beirut, on Friday, and, today, of the Druze mountains outside Beirut, the mostly pro-government people of Tripoli are seriously getting worried.
A well informed source in Tripoli told me this: "22 Sunni officers have filed their resignation and quit the army."
All officers are Sunni Muslims and most are from the north.
This because "the army is not doing anything against Hezbollah, thus making it a pro-Hezbollah tool".
Shortly more on the situation in Tripoli.
