BEIRUT – Lebanese Armed Forces troops are not allowing any women to enter or leave Sidon’s Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp before scrutinizing their IDs, NOW’s correspondent reported Wednesday.

 

Security sources told NOW that these measures aim to “identify whoever enters and leaves the camp, especially since there are women wanted by security forces.”
