Two more militants from Ain al-Hilweh turned themselves over to the authorities Monday as sources say this is the result of increased cooperation between the Palestinian factions and the state security apparatus. Mohammad Abdul-Rahman Shmandour walked alone to the Army checkpoint at the entrance of the Ain al-Hilweh camp in Sidon and announced his surrender. He is the brother of former Lebanese singer Fadl Shmandour, more commonly known as Fadl Shaker, who is still in hiding inside the camp after participating in the 2013 clashes between the Army and extremists loyal to imprisoned Preacher Sheikh Ahmad Assir in nearby Abra.Sources told The Daily Star that the militants' surrender was the result of a process emanating from direct coordination between the Army, Sidon city officials, and select figures within the camp.
