He said the wife and child of Shaker Youssef al-Absi, Fatah al-Islam’s leader, are among those who have left Lebanon.
The remaining women and children went to two other Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon – Badawi near the northern city of Tripoli and Ain al-Hilwa near the southern port city of Sidon, al-Haj said.
Two of the children evacuated received hospital treatment after leaving the camp and three women had been injured, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said.

Small numbers of troops have entered the outskirts of Nahr al-Bared but the heart of the camp has remained off-limits.
Zeina Khodr, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Lebanon, said: “Some sources are telling us [the evacuation] could be a test. Fatah al-Islam would like to see how the Lebanese army deals with the families to see whether there could be a possibility for surrender.”
