Two Killed in Factional Clash at Palestinian Camp in Lebanon

Two people were killed in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon on Thursday in a clash between hardline Islamists and members of the mainstream Palestinian faction Fatah, security sources said. The shootout in Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp in southern Lebanon spiraled from a dispute between individuals affiliated to the two sides, the sources said. These include Jund al-Sham and Fatah al-Islam, the factions involved in Thursday's violence. Lebanon's Palestinian camps for the most part fall outside the jurisdiction of the Lebanese security services.
