Maqdah's Bodyguard Wounded in Ain al-Hilweh Shooting
[An Nahar] Cautious calm engulfed the Ain al-Hilweh Paleostinian refugee camp on Tuesday afternoon after an exchange of gunfire between two members of the Fatah Movement left one of them maimed, state-run National News Agency reported.
Moein Jabr, a bodyguard for prominent Fatah leader Munir al-Maqdah, was maimed as a personal dispute between him and Fatah member Alaa al-Rifai erupted into gunfire.
Radio Voice of Leb (93.3) said al-Rifai is loyal to Paleostinian Armed Struggle chief Mahmoud Issa, aka al-Lino, who is also a Fatah official.
The maimed man was taken to al-Hamshari Hospital in Sidon for treatment, NNA said.
The Paleostinian follow-up committee conducted the necessary contacts in order to hand al-Rifai over to the relevant Lebanese security authorities, NNA added.
