The Fatah Movement Monday threatened to launch a raid in the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp to apprehend the suspected killer of one of its members, sparking fears that the operation would lead to destructive clashes in camp.Mohammad Nazih Khalil, known as Abu al-Kel, was fatally shot Friday afternoon while on his way to visit a friend in the camp's Hettin neighborhood. The suspected killer was later identified as Fatah al-Islam-affiliated I.A.Kh., who is believed to be hiding out in Hettin, which is dominated by the "Muslim Shabab" group -- formed of members of Fatah al-Islam and Jund al-Sham.The group alleged that Fatah was bringing in fighters from other camps in the country, suggesting this was a disproportionate response as Khalil's killing could have been personal.
