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 fear of destructive clashes in the 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. The neighborhood is dominated by the "Muslim Shabab" group, formed of members of Fatah al-Islam and Jund al-Sham.As tensions escalated, Palestinian National Security Forces and Fatah Movement personnel deployed across the camp, while the Muslim Shabab similarly boosted its presence in Hettin.
