Impressive gains by religious and extreme right-wing parties appeared to give Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's Likud Party the best chance to assemble a ruling coalition in close, possibly pivotal national elections here Tuesday. With nearly 99% of the vote counted, Likud held a narrow, 39-38 seat edge over its arch-rival, the more dovish Labor Party of Foreign Minister Shimon Peres.

Elections are not scheduled until November, 1992, although the fractious right-wing government led by Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and his Likud Party frequently appears on the verge of collapse.

The Tel Aviv district court agreed to a request by defense attorney Avigdor Feldman to lift a news blackout on the espionage charges against Mohammed Massawa, from the Arab town of Baqa el Gharbiya.

Defense Minister Moshe Arens appointed a committee today to study possible economic development in the occupied Gaza Strip, in what was seen as a first step toward separating the territory's economy from Israel's.

Israel devalued its currency, the shekel, just over 4% against the dollar today in a bid to revive a stagnant economy badly hit by the Palestinian uprising. Finance Minister Shimon Peres said the second devaluation in six months is intended to stimulate export-led growth without fueling inflation. A Bank of Israel spokesman said the shekel's value had been allowed to slide a total of 10.8% since the last formal devaluation Jan. 1. The Central Bureau of Statistics said the economy showed no growth at all in the first four months of this year, while industrial output continued to decline.

A Moreno Valley schoolteacher has sued Health Net, the state's second-largest health maintenance organization, for refusing to pay her maternity bills because she delivered her baby at a Health Net facility in Oceanside instead of at her "home" facility in Riverside. First-time mother Sara Israel said she was stunned when Health Net rejected her $5,000 medical claim, citing a policy that forbids women in their ninth month of pregnancy to travel more than 30 miles from their home clinic.

A showdown meeting on the Palestinian peace process produced no compromise Wednesday, and the Likud and Labor parties--Israel's ruling coalition--postponed further deliberations until Sunday. Top ministers of both parties, assembled as the so-called Inner Cabinet, met for more than two hours to consider a Labor demand for acceptance of an American formula to get the peace talks under way. Participants said that neither side changed its position.

Israel's stock market plunged nearly 10% in trading Sunday, when investors seeking to beat a tax on share profits stampeded to sell. Ninety minutes into what many predicted would be the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange's (TASE) "Black Sunday," the government backtracked.
