A neighborhood in Ein al-Hilweh refugee camp in southern Lebanon is now under the control of a Palestinian joint force after the routing of Islamist militants from the area.

Ten people are believed to have been killed and another 100 injured after fighting in the Tiri neighborhood erupted on Friday. The latest episode of violence in the camp comes after rounds of fighting left three dead in March and two dead in February.

Dozens of homes and shops were destroyed or damaged, and UNRWA, the United Nations Agency for Palestine refugees, suspended services in the camp.

Photos and video circulated on social media show some of the destruction in Ein al-Hilweh:
