Six Lebanese soldiers were killed during intense fighting as the army battled again Saturday to rout militants from a Palestinian refugee camp north of Tripoli, a military spokesman said.

For a second day, the Lebanese military launched heavy artillery bombardment of the Nahr el-Bared Palestinian refugee camp.

CNN’s Aneesh Raman said a Lebanese helicopter was also seen flying near the edge of the camp, but reports that the aircraft opened fire could not be confirmed.

The latest wave of fighting flared on Thursday after more than a week of relative quiet between the Lebanese army and Fatah al-Islam, a militant group said to be affiliated with al Qaeda that is holed up inside the camp. (Watch Al Qaeda’s ‘project’ in Lebanon Video)

The violence began May 20, when Lebanese internal security forces were conducting raids in a Tripoli neighborhood, triggering clashes near the refugee camp. Army sources said militants from Fatah al-Islam fired on the forces, who then returned fire.
