A new joint Palestinian security force will deploy in three areas of the south Lebanon refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh Friday afternoon, a Fatah official confirmed to The Daily Star. The deployment of the force in the southern refugee camp was cast into doubt after Thursday's detention of an 11-member terror cell in Tripoli that allegedly had links to an extremist organization based in the camp near Sidon. These, Palestinian sources said, were designed to give the Islamist factions more time to organize after some warned against the force's deployment in certain areas.The forces will not initially deploy fully across the camp, but will start by holding the three locations.
