Two more militant from a south Lebanon Palestinian refugee camp surrendered to the Lebanese Army Saturday, a security source told The Daily Star, continuing a trend of militants turning themselves in after an agreement between Palestinian factions and the Lebanese state last Sunday.Najem, unlike most of the other militants who have turned themselves in recently, was not linked to the the 2013 clashes between the army and extremists loyal to Assir in nearby Abra, but had planned with a group of loyalists to bomb or assault the Shiite Fatima al-Zahraa Complex in Sidon.An army statement issued Saturday confirmed that so far seven militants have surrendered themselves.While the Palestinian Joint Security Forces operate inside Ain al-Hilweh, Lebanese authorities are prohibited from entering most of the country's 12 Palestinian refugee camps.
