One year after violent clashes rocked the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp near Sidon, construction of a controversial separation wall is moving forward in a district previously occupied by Al-Qaeda-linked militants, informed sources said Friday. As has been the case in many areas where the wall has been completed, the concrete barrier is set to pass through agricultural lands encircling the camp that have largely been off-limits to their original owners due to frequent outbursts of fighting and the tense security situation. The future wall is slated to abut Ain al-Hilweh's Al-Tiri neighborhood, the site of August 2017 violent armed clashes between the camp's joint Palestinian security forces and militants loyal to extremist leader Bilal Badr.
