Death Toll Climbs as Fighting Continues Between Rival Palestinian Groups in Lebanon

HeadlineAug 01, 2023

In Lebanon, fighting between rival armed groups inside the largest Palestinian refugee camp continued for a third day Monday after attempts to broker a ceasefire failed. Another four people were killed, bringing the death toll to nine. Dozens of others have been injured. Families are trying to escape the Ein el-Hilweh refugee camp, which houses tens of thousands of Palestinians, but many have nowhere else to shelter. Meanwhile, the United Nations has suspended its aid and operations at the camp amid the violence between militant factions and members of the Fatah group.
