Some suspected criminals evading arrest in the south Lebanon refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh have welcomed the creation of a special committee to deal with their cases. Sources familiar with the camp told The Daily Star that several suspects who are still at large have welcomed the formation of the committee, with some directly communicating with its members, while others have approached them through mediators. The committee was established as part of a Lebanese-Palestinian agreement to tackle the threat posed to Lebanon's national security and the camp's surrounding areas after heavy clashes in Ain al-Hilweh in August. There are a number of wanted suspects hiding in Ain al-Hilweh as the camp is largely off-limits to Lebanese security forces.A Palestinian source told The Daily Star the suspects hiding inside the camp would be separated into three categories: suspected participants in the 2013 Abra clashes, wanted suspects from Tripoli, and Palestinian nationals with warrants out for their arrest.
