For the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh, the new year began with prominent Palestinian militant Bilal Badr announcing Tuesday that he left the volatile camp for Syria.An Islamist militia leader based in Ain al-Hilweh, Badr is wanted for instigating several rounds of fighting with the joint Palestinian security force in the camp in April and August of 2017 .Hujeir's arrest sparked tensions in the camp, with Badr's men and others belonging to extremist groups cutting off the route to Al-Nabaa as gunfire echoed in Ain al-Hilweh.The camp made its way to 2018 without any shots being fired, a relatively unfamiliar phenomenon in the camp.Gen. Bassam al-Saad issued a statement praising the commitment shown by the camp's residents.
