SIDON, Lebanon: Fatah and Islamist gunmen traded fire in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh Tuesday evening after an individual dispute escalated into an armed clash, leaving six men wounded.

A security source from the camp told The Daily Star that a fight between a juice seller and an Islamist resident quickly developed into an exchange of fire between the two groups that left people from both factions as well as civilians wounded.

Meanwhile, Lebanese Army Military Intelligence arrested two Palestinians Tuesday on charges of establishing an armed gang in the southern coastal city of Sidon and carrying out various crimes.

The two, identified as Mohammad Abdel Mohti and Bilal Asaad Nasrallah, are also accused of carrying out armed muggings and robberies in Sidon Sunday and Monday.

The two men have been transferred to the relevantjudicial authority.
