On Wednesday, three people were wounded when a personal dispute escalated into an armed clash at al-Beddawi.

The wounded were transferred to hospitals in Tripoli for treatment as the camp's joint security committees were trying to contain the situation, NNA had said.

A state of anxiety and tension engulfed the camp.
