The formation of the force was preceded by a number of apparently politically motivated murders in the camp, with an assassination attempt on Fatah Movement official Talal al-Urdini occurring Monday.But although all factions in the camp are excited to form the new force, it appears not everyone in the camp is treating it as the top priority. The Fatah Movement dominates the Palestinian National Security Forces, which constituted several groups that were merged years ago and is currently in the process of being trained up.The officials have come to Lebanon to monitor a round of National Security Forces training that is taking place in Rashidieh camp in Tyre, which is the second-largest camp dominated by the Fatah Movement.
