Ten soldiers have been killed since June 1, bringing the total to 45 soldiers killed. Well over 100 others have been killed, including Palestinian civilians and Fatah Al Islam fighters.</p><p>The fighting is taking place along the periphery of the camp, as reinforcements, including tanks and armored personnel carriers continue to arrive on the scene. According to unnamed sources cited by Lebanon's <i>Daily Star</i> , the camp has been divided into three sectors. With the Army controlling one sector, the Fatah Al Islam another, and mainline Palestinian factions and the remaining refugees controlling a third. The heavily armed Fatah Al Islam is receiving no support from Palestinian factions, since it is not a Palestinian group, but a terror gang comprised mostly of Saudi, Yemeni, and other non-Palestinian and non-Lebanese nationals. It is part of Vice President Dick Cheney's operation to restart the Lebanese civil war.</p><p>Nonetheless the army's heavy shelling of the camp is causing considerable tension among innocent Palestinian civilians, as many as 7,000 of whom remain in the camp.</p><p>Meanwhile, clashes have broken out between the Army and the Jund Al Sham militant group at the Ain Al Hiweh Palestinian refugee camp in the south, which is the largest of 12 such camps in Lebanon.</p><p>The clashes began when a grenade was thrown at an Army guard post allegedly by a member of Jund Al Sham. Sporadic fighting has taken place over the last 24 hours as the other Palestinian factions, Palestinian Islamic Organizations, and Lebanese mediators try to negotiate a cease-fire. The Jund Al Sham was one of the groups that had attempted to mediate with the Fatah Al Islam prior to the apparent collapse of those talks.</p></div></body>
