A final agreement was reached Tuesday on the structure of the new joint security force in Ain al-Hilweh, with the Lebanese Army Intelligence chief Brig. Gen. Khodr Hammoud saying it will be deployed in the next few days. The force's officers are set to meet at the headquarters in Tahtani Street at 11 a.m. Wednesday before heading out to inspect the three main positions that will be manned by the armed force. Meanwhile, Hammoud stressed to Sidon area reporters that what matters is the force's ability to contain the precarious security situation in the camp. Hammoud said that the Army's expectations of the force have been made clear.
