Tensions High in Ain al-Hilweh after Assassination of al-Lino Bodyguard
[An Nahar] Tensions were high on Wednesday in the Ain al-Hilweh Paleostinian refugee camp after unknown gunnies assassinated one of the bodyguards of Paleostinian Armed Struggle chief Mahmoud Issa, who goes by the nom de guerre al-Lino, several televisions reported.

The slain bodyguard was identified as Ashraf al-Qaderi.

On August 5 al-Lino himself beat feet an liquidation attempt by two members of the hardline Islamist group Jund al-Sham.

Al-Lino's Fatah Movement has warned that Jund al-Sham and Fatah al-Islam
A Syrian-incubated al-Qaeda work-alike that they think can be turned off if no longer needed to keep the Leb pot stirred.
, another bad boy group, have become like an "octopus" that is seeking wider influence in the camp through recruiting young members.

Al-Lino announced on August 8 that it was time to clear Ein el-Hellhole and other Paleostinian camps from beturbanned goons threatening the Paleostinian people.

By long-standing convention, the Lebanese army does not enter the country's 12 refugee camps, leaving security inside to the Paleostinians themselves.

Ain al-Hilweh, the largest Paleostinian camp in the country, is home to about 50,000 refugees and is known to harbor gun-hung tough guys and runaways.

The United Nations idea whose time has gone...
Relief and Works Agency for Paleostinian refugees (UNRWA) estimates that some 425,000 Paleostinian refugees are living in Leb. Others, however, estimate the number to be closer to 250,000.
