Months after the end of violent clashes between factions in the Mieh Mieh Palestinian refugee camp that killed at least five people and injured 30 others, a new, nonviolent battle has emerged. This time, Lebanese and Palestinians are fighting over a "temporary security wall" that has reignited a dispute over occupied property.Three properties that belong to three separate Sidonian families, the Wakim, Daniel and Abu Chaar families, are at the center of the debate, as they currently fall within the camp and are being occupied by Palestinian families.The wall proved controversial, sparking protest from the Lebanese owners of property that falls within the camp's newly erected boundary.According to Samak, Ansar Allah's leadership intends to return the properties, on the condition that their Lebanese owners guarantee not to rent or sell it to any other group inside the camp.
