Lebanese police crack down on Palestinian Refugee Camps

For many years the scapegoats of Lebanese society, the Palestinians are once again in the firing line.

Since the civil war, police have feared entering the camps, maintaining a presence only at the gates. But now the Army have placed observation posts around the Al-Na'mah camp, and the camps of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) in the Bekka Valley.

The Army said that they seized weapons and issued arrest warrants against some Palestinians.

Meanwhile PFLP-GC leader Ahmad Jibril issued an 'urgent warning' for all members to be on 'full alert' and ready for mobilisation at any time.

Sasa , I want ask you if the new iraqi constitution gaurantees freedom of movment and living and protection from discremination,naim

yeah this gibril guy put them on "full alert" ??. Last time they burned tires and protested against reinforced controls around the camps. And not long ago they issued a statement that went like "Fouad Siniora will bear full responsibility if he decides to send the army disarm the camps".

After being thrown out of Jordan for attempting a coup, coming in our country as uninvited guests, behaving like thugs, contributing in igniting a civil war, establishing "security islands", now they are threatening us because we're attempting to tighten security in an attempt to save lives in these difficult times.
