A statement from the camp's joint security force posted on social media following the meeting condemned the attack on the headquarters of the joint security force and the targeting of its members.Brig. Gen. Abu Ratib, military and security officer of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine's General Command in Lebanon, said he was on the side of a military operation designed to eliminate those who tamper with the security of Palestinian camps.
