"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Tensions Return to Ain el-Hilweh as Grenade Hurled near Army Troops- Naharnet

A man hurled a hand grenade that failed to explode during a personal dispute Monday at a Lebanese army checkpoint at the entrance of the Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp, the National News Agency said.
The man, identified as Saleh Abu Arisha, was immediately arrested by army troops as a bomb technician defused the grenade, NNA added.
Separately, the agency said the camp was witnessing tensions sparked by the deployment of the Joint Palestinian Security Force in the al-Youssef Hall on the camp's al-Fawqani street.
“Islamist militants refused this deployment, asking the security force to withdraw from the hall,” NNA said.
