According to Palestinian twitter sources and The New Arab website, Lebanese authorities have begun to build a security wall around Ain al-Hilweh, the largest Palestinian refugee camp in the country.

[Translation from alaraby.co.uk: Lebanese authorities begin constructing an isolation wall around Ain al-Hilweh, home to 75,000 Palestinians]
The wall, which will take 15 months to complete, is part of an agreement with some Palestinians. Hamas official Abu Ahmad Faysal in Ain al-Hilweh was quoted in Lebanon’s Daily Star in early November.
Four towers will be constructed… The construction of the wall aims to decrease the confrontation between [the camp’s] inhabitants and the army.
But other Palestinians were angry, condemning the measure as something that would worsen conditions and would be “a wall of shame.”
