In a previous version of this story The Daily Star erroneously reported that the Lebanese Army had entered the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp to arrest members of a Daesh (ISIS) terror cell. The leader of the cell was hiding out in Ain al-Hilweh, but arrests were made outside the camp, according to an Army statement. The Daily Star regrets this error.
