having just returned from nahr el bared and baddawi camps i can say that things are not improving. nahr el bared, which was supposed to be opened for three days (meaning the maximum security prison that it is would be allowed visitors and the prisoners could come and go freely for 3 days) is now under lockdown. there are army tanks surrounding it. baddawi camp was equally hard to get two as there are two checkpoints between the camps. there were also tires burning and garbage burning surrounding the entrance to the camp. there are at least 2 martyrs today and around 6 hospitalized in mina, 3 in trablus, and 18 in safad hospital in baddawi. the fear now is that the lebanese army will be rounding up palestinians in the maximum security prison that is nahr el bared tonight (as i type) and move them to yet another prison.
The funeral of 16 year old child, Ahmad Kassem, who was shot by the Lebanese army, ended up (according to a phone call received just few minutes before the network was interrupted) becoming a clash with the army with a total of 25 wounded (some of them in critical condition).
The hospital of Badawi is unable to receive many of the conditions as it is lacking the proper medical equipment.
Since official statements are expected to deviate from reality, we explain the story as we receive it (the story will be later supported by videos taken during the events).
The army eased restrictions on check points, allowing a large number of people to enter the camp to join the funeral coming from Badawi. In fact, news was received that the army would allow people to enter Nahr el Bared to give their condolences.
