An unidentified source from the Palestinian Fatah Movement reported that Fatah official Sultan Abu al-Aynayn stepped down from his post as head of the Fatah Supervising Commission in Lebanon following the request of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
According to the source, Abbas received intelligence reports that Abu al-Aynayn was “implementing an ulterior agenda” in the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp, which prompted Abbas’ request.
Abu al-Aynayn will announce his resignation by saying he is moving to Ramallah to take on a new position within Fatah, said the source.
Abu al-Aynayn denied initial reports of his resignation.
In the next two days, Abbas is to send a personal consultant to monitor the situation of Fatah in Lebanon, added the source. (Now Lebanon)
