Renewed Tension at Tyre's al-Bass Camp

An armed dispute in a Palestinian refugee camp in the southern city of Tyre renewed on Monday, forcing the army to deploy on its outskirts to contain the incident, the state-run National News Agency reported.

NNA said the sons of Jaafar Hajou – a man injured during a fight in al-Bass camp on Sunday - opened fire near the house of Youssef Draz, who fired back in the air.

No one was injured in the incident, the agency said.

But the army deployed near the camp and blocked the road leading to it to prevent any deterioration in the security situation.

Palestinian factions worked to contain the incident, NNA added.

The gunfight between the members of the two families erupted on Sunday after three brothers Youssef, Hussein and Salim Draz stabbed Hajou, who is their uncle, over financial disputes and old problems.
