The majority of Palestinian factions in the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp Sunday claimed that one of Lebanon's most wanted Islamist fugitives had left the south Lebanon camp over the weekend.According to security sources in the camp, the calm presiding over the suspected residence of Islamist fugitive Shadi Mawlawi in Ain al-Hilweh has led the majority of Palestinian officials in the camp to conclude that he vacated the area early Saturday morning. Islamist groups in Ain al-Hilweh asked their representatives Friday to contact militants, who reportedly know the whereabouts of Mawlawi, to convince the fugitive to discreetly leave the camp in order to avert a military clash with the Lebanese Army stationed at the camp's entrances, the sources said.
