Palestinian security officials have proposed a plan to let armed fugitives leave Ain al-Hilweh and to build an electronic fence around the southern refugee camp, a source told The Daily Star Thursday.Work on the wall was halted after its construction was condemned by several Palestinian and Lebanese parties in the camp.The new plan, put forth by the Higher Palestinian Security committee that supervises Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, would see an electronic fence with surveillance cameras erected at critical points around the camp instead of a wall.The Army, however, urged Palestinian leaders in Ain al-Hilweh to play a more proactive role in maintaining security inside the camp if the wall is not constructed.
