Although Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' talks with Lebanese leaders did not touch in detail on the status of Palestinian refugee camps, particularly the Ain al-Hilweh camp, the Lebanese side demanded that an end be put to recurring security violations emanating from the camp notorious for a long-running power struggle between the Fatah Movement and Islamists, Lebanese sources said.Lebanese officials told Abbas that Lebanon was determined to control security inside the Palestinian camps and in neighboring cities and areas, the sources said.Abbas informed Lebanese officials that the head of the Palestinian security agency had met with the new chief of the Central Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo, in Washington to discuss this highly sensitive issue.However, Abbas voiced his deep concern to Lebanese officials over escalating Jewish settlement building in the occupied territories, saying that the Palestinian Authority does not want and cannot face this matter with a military force, and it does not seek a new war with the Israelis, the sources said.
