Fugitives Shadi Mawlawi and his partner Osama Mansour are believed to be hiding in the southern refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh, security sources told The Daily Star.Hadara was the second in command to Ahmad Salim Mikati, who led an ISIS sleeper cell in Asoun, north Lebanon.In response to this, more clashes sprung up in the Tripoli neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh, and residents there now speculate that the fighters were trying to break through to the Tripoli Souks, to form one united front with Mikati's men.In both areas, the Army was able to put down the clashes. Weeks after the clashes, many questions remain, such as the whereabouts of extremist preacher Sheikh Khaled Hablas, who had called for Sunnis to defect from the Army and whose fighters clashed with the Army in Minyeh while battles were raging in Tripoli.Security forces are still trying to pinpoint where Hablas is hiding.Hablas' neighbors in Minyeh said that he was kind, honest and faithful.Hablas, who is in his 40s, grew up an orphan.
