Four 4 people were killed in Ain el-Helweh clashes between mainstream Fatah Movement and Osbat al-Ansar militants in the Ain el-Helweh Palestinian refugee camp in south Lebanon. One of the victims is a Fatah member and another is a civilian woman .
Munir al-Maqdah, head of the main police force in the camp, is working on easing the situation.
Based on the so called “Cairo accord ” dated November 2 , 1969, the Lebanese army is not authorized to enter the Palestinian refugee camp. The accord was signed in Cairo by Yassir Arafat and the Lebanese army commander General Emile Bustani. The Cairo accord effectively established “a state within a state” for the Palestinians in Lebanon
