A meeting was held late Sunday between Hezbollah and the Palestinian factions at the party’s office in Haret Hreik to discuss the incident that took place near the Burj al-Barajneh refugee camp in Beirutâ€™s southern suburb in which one person was killed and five others were wounded.
Both sides confirmed in a joint statement that the clash was an individual incident and has no political backgrounds, declaring the formation of a commission of inquiry into the killing of Palestinian Mohammed Al-Samrawi.
The two sides stressed on the need to â€œremove all forms of tension and consider martyr Samrawi and the wounded five sons of the camp as the martyrs and the wounded of the Palestinian-Lebanese resistanceâ€. The statement emphasized on the â€œstrength of the Palestinian-Lebanese relationship, and the rejection of any attempt that may lead to tension and incitement.â€
Soon after the skirmish erupted to gunfire , security forces and representatives of the factions of the Palestine Liberation Organization intervened in a bid to contain the incident.
