 Lebanon’s largest Palestinian refugee camp, Ayn el-Helva, has witnessed a resurgence of hostilities, resulting in injuries to 39 individuals. 

As a precautionary measure due to the ongoing clashes, Lebanon University has temporarily suspended classes for one day.

According to reports from the official Lebanese news agency NNA, the clashes, which reignited last night in Ayn el-Helva, continued for a significant duration. The conflict pitted the Fatah Movement against other Palestinian groups within the camp, leading to injuries sustained by 39 civilians.


In response to the escalating violence, Lebanon University in the city of Sidon, where Ayn el-Helva is situated, has decided to halt classes for one day to ensure the safety of its student body.
