Unlike previous years, the scrutiny placed on the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in 2018 was on par with that of another of Sidon's camps, Mieh Mieh, where Palestinian security sources say eyes will stay trained on both in 2019 . Various security incidents struck Ain al-Hilweh and Mieh Mieh, ranging from limited clashes and assassinations in the former, to one of the bloodiest fights in years in the latter.The security situation in both Ain al-Hilweh and Mieh Mieh also exacerbated the tough living conditions of their residents.The second source noted that one potential cause of future tension is the presence of people wanted by the Lebanese state who have sought refuge mainly in Ain al-Hilweh but in Mieh Mieh as well, especially several fugitives who do not enjoy the support of Palestinian factions.In terms of major clashes, Mieh Mieh overshadowed the other camps in the country. The situation in the camp, which is located in the Christian-dominated town of Mieh Mieh, began deteriorating in mid-2018, before bursting into full-fledged clashes in October.The Army lured Bahaaeddine Hujeir outside the camp and then arrested him.
