Local residents of south Lebanon's Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp Wednesday criticized studies conducted to provide compensation for damage caused by heavy fighting in 2017 . The survey committee – made up of representatives from U.N. Palestinian aid agency UNRWA, Developmental Action without Borders and the Norwegian Refugee Council – was formed to find and approve beneficiaries for compensation for damage resulting from recent rounds of intense fighting in the south Lebanon camp. European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations initiated an urgent financial assistance program that could reach up to 500 families affected by the fighting with $830 of aid per family.The fighting between Badr and forces led by the joint Palestinian security forces and Fatah destroyed some of the camp's infrastructure, causing damage to hundreds of housing units in a number of neighborhoods of the camp.
