The Lebanese security services have received reports from Palestinian security officials about an influx of a large number of fighters from the Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) to the Palestinian refugee camps of Ain al-Hilweh and Rashidieh in southern Lebanon, where the new arrivals were joining active extremist groups and cells.The security services expect that the camp will descend into further violence, especially following the appearance in Lebanon of Nusra Front notable leaders, who move around both within the camp and outside of it, particularly in the Bekaa Valley.Additionally, a Qatari security delegation recently arrived to Lebanon and held a series of meetings with security officials, which entailed discussing files related to the jihadists who have allegedly come to Lebanon from Syria.
