For many years the scapegoats of Lebanese society, the Palestinians are once again in the firing line.
Since the civil war, police have feared entering the camps, maintaining a presence only at the gates. But now the Army have placed observation posts around the Al-Na’mah camp, and the camps of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) in the Bekka Valley.
The Army said that they seized weapons and issued arrest warrants against some Palestinians.
Meanwhile PFLP-GC leader Ahmad Jibril issued an ‘urgent warning’ for all members to be on ‘full alert’ and ready for mobilisation at any time.
