Tensions soared in Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp Sunday, after a member of an influential family was shot dead by two masked men in the early hours of the morning.After the incident, the follow-up committee of national and religious Palestinian factions held a meeting in the camp's cultural center.It stressed that all Palestinians in Lebanon were united against attempts to disrupt stability in the camp.The Abulkil family also issued a statement denouncing the crime.Last year, however, was marked by a number of similar killings, prompting questions over whether a certain party was trying to disturb the peace among different Palestinian factions in the camp.In early December, Fatah member Mohammad Abdel-Hamid, also known as Mohammad al-Saadi, and two Popular Front to Liberate Palestine member Abed al-Youssef were shot dead south of the camp by a gunman.
