TEHRAN (FNA)- Lebanese security officials said clashes between rival factions in Lebanon's largest Palestinian refugee camp have killed one person and injured at least 13.
The clashes in the Ein el-Hilweh camp near the Southern city of Sidon began Monday night after a member of the extremist Fatah al-Islam group was shot and wounded in what appeared to be a personal dispute, AP reported.
The incident sparked a firefight in which a Palestinian from the mainstream Fatah group was killed and five people were injured.
The officials said heavy clashes with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades resumed Tuesday.
At least 8 people were injured Tuesday, according to the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak with media.
