Clashes erupted in Lebanon’s largest Palestinian refugee camp near the southern port city of Sidon, killing at least five people and wounding seven, Palestinian officials said.

Reportedly, U.N.R.W.A., the United Nations’ agency for Palestinian refugees, put the death toll at six and Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency said two children were among those wounded.

Palestinian officials, speaking to the Press on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, said the fighting broke out after an unknown gunman tried to assassinate Islamist militant Mahmoud Khalil, killing a companion of his instead.

Later, Islamist militants assassinated a Palestinian military general from the Fatah Group and three escorts, another Palestinian official told the Press.

Ein el-Hilweh is notorious for its lawlessness and violence is not uncommon. The U.N. says about 55,000 people live in the camp, which was established in 1948 to house Palestinians displaced by Israeli forces during the establishment of Israel.
