Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon will not face charges in a long-simmering scandal over campaign financing, but one of his sons will be indicted, the Justice Ministry said Thursday. Atty. Gen. Menachem Mazuz's decision to bring charges against Omri Sharon, a lawmaker and close advisor to his father, is a blow to the prime minister as he girds for a series of political confrontations over his plan to uproot the Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli officials issued fresh demands Sunday that the Palestinian leadership clamp down on militias after a suicide bomber blew himself up near a bus station in southern Israel, causing numerous injuries. The bombing in the Negev desert city of Beersheba, about 45 miles southwest of Jerusalem, was the first such attack on Israel since it withdrew from all 21 Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip and four in the northern West Bank. The last settlers were removed Tuesday.

Israel warned Friday that it will retaliate swiftly and harshly against every Palestinian attack on its soldiers and civilians, as gun battles raged in the West Bank and Palestinians accused the Jewish state of detonating a car bomb that killed an Islamic militant.
