Relative calm prevailed in Ain al-Hilweh Monday amid calls on the Lebanese Army to put an end to the security chaos following three days of clashes between Fatah members and Islamists.Residents of the camp demanded that authorities end the irregularities at the camp, calling on the Lebanese Army to deploy to the area.The camp is nominally off-limits to the Lebanese Army and other state security forces, although they have on occasion conducted operations inside.The recent events coincided with a visit to the camp by dissident Fatah commander Mohammed Dahlan's wife and son. His wife is reportedly seeking to increase Dahlan's influence in Ain al-Hilweh's Fatah Movement at the expense of mainstream Fatah commanders who follow the Palestinian Authority under President Mahmoud Abbas.
