"The prime minister is standing firm," said Yosef Ben-Aharon, a top aide to Shamir.

When Yasser Arafat steps out of his ravaged base in the West Bank for the first time in months, he may not recognize what he sees. Assuming a U.S.-brokered deal takes effect and the siege on Arafat's compound is lifted, the Palestinian Authority president will tread into a physical and political wasteland, a West Bank devastated by three weeks of assault by the most powerful army in the Middle East.

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.

Israel and the Palestinians on Sunday accepted a U.S. proposal aimed at lifting the Israeli army's monthlong siege of Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat inside his West Bank headquarters. The deal, based on a proposal by President Bush, would release Arafat from weeks spent trapped on two floors of his shattered offices in Ramallah and defuse one of the most contentious issues dividing the two sides. Palestinian officials said they expected the siege to be lifted as early as today.

Palestinian gunmen disguised as Israeli soldiers cut through a fence surrounding this isolated Jewish settlement Saturday and raced from house to house, shooting residents at breakfast, on the street and in their beds, the Israeli army said. Four people, including a 5-year-old girl, were killed, and seven others wounded in the brazen daylight rampage, the deadliest such attack since Israel launched a sweeping offensive against Palestinian militants in the West Bank a month ago.

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.

One day after Saudi Arabia's crown prince prodded President Bush to do more to restrain the Israeli military, the American leader Friday stressed his commitment to the Jewish state. "We will not allow Israel to be crushed," Bush said. But even as he emphasized his intention to stand by the longtime U.S. ally, he repeated his demand that Israel withdraw its troops from Palestinian territory it has occupied during its recent incursion into the West Bank.

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.

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.
