When you add the keyword "Tripoli" to an image, you're asked to check one of the following:

Tripoli (Lebanon)

Tripoli (Tripolitania)

I noticed that when searching for the Tripoli in Lebanon there are, unfortunately, more than a few shots for Tripoli in Libya. I wonder if this mistake would be reduced if "Tripoli (Tripolitania)" was changed to the more standard "Tripoli (Libya).

Good call. Tripoli - Libya (Tripolitania) is now available for use replacing the old term and still has Tripoli as a synonym.
