Ain al-Hilweh

The Daily Star reports on the continuing efforts by Palestinians to rid Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp of the sectarian Salafi fighters:

Sheikh Jamal al-Khuttab, an Islamist militant leader in Ain al-Hilweh and spiritual guide of Osbat al-Ansar, said on Tuesday that security at the camp was far better than in Nahr al-Bared before the mid-2007 battle. He stressed that "those responsible for the [battle] were mostly outsiders with particular views" and added that "this is not the case in Ain al-Hilweh."
