Israel and the United Nations averted a confrontation Friday as Secretary-General Kofi Annan agreed to delay a fact-finding mission to the West Bank until after the Israeli Cabinet meets Sunday to discuss the inquiry. Senior U.N. officials had said early Friday that the mission would depart as planned to the region today, despite an Israeli demand that the world body postpone the inquiry, ordered by the Security Council, into Israel's recent three-week occupation of the Jenin refugee camp.

Negotiations with Israel over a U.N. investigation into its three-week occupation of the Jenin refugee camp got underway here late Thursday and will resume today, U.N. officials said, as the fact-finding team prepares to leave for the Middle East. The Israeli delegation, arriving for talks at the U.N. Secretariat, said it hoped to be able to resolve its concerns about the U.N. mission--and to avert another Security Council meeting on the issue.

A 5-year-old boy and a Palestinian youth were killed by gunfire from Israeli troops during anti-government protests Tuesday, and a leading Jewish expert on the occupied territories said that government efforts to end the Arab uprising are resulting in a "horrifying increase" in violations of Palestinian civil rights. The boy, Zia Haj Mohammed, is believed to be the youngest victim of army gunfire in more than 10 months of anti-Israeli unrest in the territories.

Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's government fell Thursday night on a tense parliamentary vote of no confidence as the rightist Likud Party leader doggedly refused to accept an American formula to start Israel's first peace talks with the Palestinians. The vote was 60 against Shamir's government, 55 in favor of it and five key abstentions. Shamir's defeat marked the first time in Israel's 41 years of independence a government had lost a no-confidence vote in the Knesset, Israel's Parliament.

Some say the trouble began after some 6- and 7-year-olds taunted a column of teen-age Muslim nationalists parading through the winding Old City of Nablus. The Muslims boxed the ears of some of the toddlers and offended their big brothers, who belonged to a rival gang from the Palestine Liberation Organization. Others say the conflict stemmed from simple turf battles between the Muslims and the secular PLO youths. No matter.

Negotiations toward a peaceful end to the three-week siege at the Church of the Nativity hit a stumbling block late Thursday as encircled Palestinians demanded a meeting with their equally besieged leader, Yasser Arafat. It was unclear whether the Israelis would permit such a meeting. However, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon indicated that he might loosen restrictions on the Palestinian leader, who is trapped by Israeli forces in his compound in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

It was 4 a.m. April 3 when the first Israeli soldiers crept into the Jenin refugee camp, the cinder-block houses looming pale and white in the darkness. Steeled to battle what they had been told was a garrison of armed terrorists, the soldiers advanced steadily northward through the camp, a riot of concrete buildings and narrow alleys sprawled over a gently sloping hillside.

Razor wire curls around the nectarine and almond trees flowering in this tiny farming community a few yards from Israel's border with Lebanon. Farmers are buying guns. The children spend afternoons in bomb shelters. Bullet holes pockmark the local military base. And many families are thinking of leaving. "People are terrified now," said Haim Briton, 32, who heard shots whiz by his head last week as he tended his fruit trees growing along the border fence.

The statement issued Saturday by Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat on the WAFA news agency, translated from Arabic: The Palestinian leadership and his excellency, President Arafat, express their deep condemnation for all terrorist activities, whether it is state terrorism, terrorism by a group or individual terrorism. This position comes from our steady principle that rejects using violence and terror against civilians as a way to achieve political goals.

Two budding controversies are pulling the debate into the open. In one, a military wife is campaigning to avert a trial of her husband for ordering troops to beat Palestinian detainees.
