An Islamic terrorist was seriously wounded after being shot in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ein el-Hilweh in southern Lebanon, security officials said. The man, 27-year-old Jalal Hassanein, was evacuated a hospital in the nearby southern Lebanese city of Sidon after suffering multiple gunshot wounds. Hassanein is close to one of the camp's terror chiefs, Shehadeh Jawhar. Jawhar is believed to have links with al-Qaida in Iraq, according to the security officials who requested anonymity because they were privy to classified information from inside the camp. Ein el-Hilweh is a hotbed of Islamic extremists and is notorious for violence among Palestinian factions. The security officials say the masked gunmen who attacked him escaped after the Monday night attack.
