Palestinian leadership in the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp in south Lebanon held a meeting Friday to discuss the recent additional security measures taken by the Lebanese Army.The Army has recently put tighter security in place around the entrance of the camp, reportedly due to the illegal activities being carried out in the camp, the use of the camp as a hideout by wanted criminals. After Friday's meeting, the camp's leadership released a statement addressing the Army's move. A senior Palestinian official said prior to the meeting that the leadership was considering conducting a general strike and disrupting the movement of non-residents into the camp, in response to the new measures.
