The Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh will likely witness more assassinations carried out by some extremist groups against their rivals, particularly those allied to Hezbollah, security sources said.Speaking to The Daily Star, the sources, familiar with the situation in the camp, said that assassinating people close to Hezbollah or to the party-linked Resistance Brigades inside Ain al-Hilweh has become an easy and organized act, explaining that extremist groups aimed to rid the camp of all elements hostile to them.Sources close to Hezbollah said that the party preferred not to retaliate to assassinations targeting Resistance Brigades individuals, as it considered preserving the security of Ain al-Hilweh as the priority now.The sources said that the threat posed by takfiri groups in the camp has put the joint force to test and raised the question of whether extremist groups planned to turn Ain al-Hilweh into another Nahr al-Bared.
