Masked gunmen killed a Palestinian commander in the Ain al-Helweh refugee camp in southern Lebanon on Monday, a camp official told AFP.
"Two masked gunmen on a motorcycle... opened fire with a machine gun on Mohammed Zeidan in front of his home," the camp official from the mainstream Fatah faction of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said.
"He was transferred to a health centre but was pronounced dead on arrival," the official added, speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity.
A camp medic said Zeidan had been sprayed with at least 15 bullets.
