Lebanese Army constructing wall around parts of Palestinian refugee camp

AJN.- Lebanese authorities hold that the Ain al-Hilweh has become a refuge for militants.



La moda de los muros llegó al Líbano: Levantan uno alrededor de un campo de “refugiados” palestinos

AJN.- The Lebanese military has started building a tall cement wall and watchtowers around parts of the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp, near the southern city of Sidon, inspiring popular protest on social media.

The wall and watchtowers come as a part of an agreement between the military and the Palestinian factions in the camp and will take 15 months to complete. The Lebanese Armed Forces are not allowed to enter the camp.

Munir al-Maqdah, the head of the Joint Palestinian Security Forces, told Sky News Arabia that “the wall is being built outside the camp and far away from residential areas.”

The military informed Palestinian leaders in Lebanon that “the wall and [watchtowers] are being built for security concerns, which we accepted,” Maqdah added.

He acknowledged, however, that the wall will have a bad effect on camp residents. “The psychological implications of a wall will be negative and difficult [to overcome],” he said, adding that the military agreed to a number of Palestinian proposals to amend the wall’s path and the watchtowers’ locations.

Ain al-Hilweh, the largest Palestinian camp in the country with nearly 120,000 residents, has suffered from poor security. In June 2015, top Fatah leader Talal Balawna was assassinated there. Two months later, armed clashes between Fatah and an Islamist terrorist group, Jund al-Sham, broke out in the camp, lasting for more than a week. In September 2016, the Lebanese military arrested the founder of Jund al-Islam, Imad Yasmin, whom it charges is also an ISIS leader.

Lebanese authorities say that Ain al-Hilweh has become a refuge for terrorists who are planning to carry out attacks on Lebanese targets.
