Around a dozen Hezbollah-allied gunmen were handed over to authorities earlier this week from areas adjacent to the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh, as Lebanese security forces beefed up measures against terrorist groups, security sources said Thursday. The sources revealed that 11 members of the Hezbollah-linked Resistance Brigades were turned over to Lebanese authorities from the areas of Taamir Ain al-Hilweh and Villat, which lie adjacent to the camp in the southern port city of Sidon. The suspects are among those wanted in several security incidents, including resisting security forces during a 2014 Villat shootout and assaulting an Information Branch patrol unit in Taamir the same year. Sources said that a large security procession belonging to Hezbollah, including a bus and two cars with tinted windows, arrived Tuesday night in the Taamir area to transport the 11 to Beirut.
