Man wounded in Ain al-Hilweh shooting
Date of incident:
September 2, 2017
Number of Injured:
Brief clashes in south Lebanon's Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp left one man wounded.
Around 11 p.m., a personal dispute between two Palestinian refugees in Sidon's Ain al-Hilweh escalated into an exchange of fire between Osbat al-Ansar members and Jund al-Sham members in the camp's Tawari neighborhood.
Musa Sueid - nephew of Osbat al-Ansar’s top official Sheikh Abu Ubaida - was wounded after Jund al-Sham's Hasan Murshid, also known as "al-Shibel,” shot him in his leg.
The dispute reportedly started over a dispute concerning fire crackers that children were playing with.
Classification of conflict (primary):
Individual acts of violence
Violent incidents which do not have a specific or a known political agenda but are caused by the general proliferation of weapons, of trained and untrained soldiers or militants, by the general inefficiency of the Justice system, and past-traditions and histories of violence within society.
