Sources expect further security incidents in the southern Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh next year, as authorities continue their search for individuals planning terrorist attacks. As 2015, marked by instability, comes to an end, speculation has risen on whether Sidon's Ain al-Hilweh will again be a source of security tensions and occupy the political and media spotlight. Palestinian sources say that the camp, the largest in Lebanon, is not out of the woods yet. Ain al-Hilweh and its residents have witnessed tough times in 2015, ranging from security incidents to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the camp.Members of the Fatah Movement and other organizations have been among those targeted in these incidents.In March, the body of Fatah member Khaled Rahhal was found in the camp. Despite the fragile security situation in Ain al-Hilweh throughout the year, the presence of the joint Palestinian forces had a positive influence on the camp, as did efforts by residents to preserve stability.
