A joint Palestinian elite force was deployed to Sidon's Mieh Mieh refugee camp Tuesday in an attempt to maintain stability in the volatile area following successes in the nearby Ain al-Hilweh camp. The force was launched in Mieh Mieh by the Higher Palestinian Security Committee, which supervises security forces in Palestinian camps across the country, after members held a meeting in the camp. A 150-member joint elite force was launched last summer in Ain al-Hilweh, Lebanon's largest Palestinian refugee camp, following tensions and a fragile security situation.The joint elite force will also be deployed in the other Palestinian refugee camps, Maqdah added.Earlier this month, it was announced that camps in Beirut would soon see their own elite forces once deployment in Mieh Mieh was complete.
