The World

September 11, 1985

New fighting broke out at Beirut's Borj el Brajne refugee camp despite Syrian efforts to enforce a cease-fire between Palestinians in the camp and Shia Muslims who are trying to keep the Palestine Liberation Organization from regaining a power base. Syria sent officers to monitor the cease-fire, but it has been wary of involving its own troops. It was not clear what caused the latest outbreak of shooting, but Shias told reporters they were impatient with the truce and wanted to end the battle by driving out the Palestinians.
