Fighting reignited on the streets of the Mieh Mieh Palestinian refugee camp Friday evening, ending what had been just hours of calm.Fatah and Ansar Allah have been battling each other in the camp on and off for nearly two weeks.A cease-fire had been reached Thursday evening with the help of Speaker Nabih Berri, and was solidified early Friday afternoon during a meeting brokered by Hezbollah.By the end of the meeting, the parties affirmed the cease-fire and agreed that any person suspected of causing trouble in Palestinian refugee camps would be handed over to the Lebanese security agencies and that Mieh Mieh would be restored to normal.The atmosphere in Mieh Mieh had been calm earlier Friday following the previous day's clashes, which paralyzed aspects of daily life in the city of Sidon and its surrounding villages.
