Fatah member shot by unknown gunmen in Palestinian refugee camp
A member of the Fatah movement was severely injured Thursday when unidentified gunmen shot him in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, sources said.
The Palestinian sources identified the victim as Imad al-Saidi, who was transferred from the Ain al-Hilweh camp to a nearby hospital for treatment, DPA reported.
Fatah has accused the al-Qaeda-inspired group Jund al-Sham, which is based in the camp, of involvement in the shooting, raising tensions between the two groups, the sources said.
The camp's security committee said an investigation would be launched into the incident, the National News Agency reported.
The Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp, situated in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon, is home to around 70,000 Palestinian refugees. Some 367,000 Palestinian refugees live in miserable conditions in 12 camps across Lebanon.
