Head of Hamas’s political bureau Khaled Mishaal on Thursday evening phoned a number of Lebanese officials and urged them to necessarily work on halting construction of an isolation wall at Ein al-Hilweh refugee camp.

According to a statement released by the Hamas Movement, Mishaal had telephone conversations in this regard with parliament speaker Nabih Berri, outgoing premier Tammam Salam and premier-designate Saad Hariri.

Mishaal clearly warned about the serious impacts of this wall on the lives of the Palestinian refugees in the camp and the brotherly relations between the two peoples.

The Hamas official also pointed to the negative image and connotation this wall would reflect about Lebanon.

He asserted that the Palestinian people would always remain keen on protecting Lebanon’s security and stability and not interfering in its internal affairs, stressing that the refugees in diaspora would never relinquish their right of return to Palestine.

The Lebanese army recently started to build a wall around the camp, which is located southeast of Sidon city and inhabited by 80,000 Palestinian refugees.

The wall, which will be provided with several watchtowers, began to take shape on Sunday. The decision to build it was taken by the Lebanese army, which claimed its construction was a security measure.

However, it is still unclear whether the wall will encircle the whole camp or only its western side.
