Jamal Kadi, a gaunt and penniless 48-year-old, was born a refugee. As a teenager, he became a refugee once again. He has raised eight children as refugees. And the question on his mind now is: Will he die a refugee too? Like the estimated 370,000 other Palestinians living in uneasy exile in Lebanon, Kadi is all but forgotten in most of the discussions taking place over Middle East peace.

BURJ EL-SHEMALI, Lebanon - The midday heat is stifling in the living room of the cramped apartment where Rania resides with her two sisters, their husbands, children and various other relatives who have invited them in. Fans in the corner are still: The power is off 20 hours a day in this densely populated Palestinian refugee camp, east of the southern Lebanese city of Tyre. Decades ago, tents here gave way to gray concrete buildings, with heat-trapping zinc roofs that were meant to be temporary.

Israeli jets attacked Palestinian positions Friday in this Christian hill town overlooking the south Lebanon port of Sidon, and Christian militia gunfire shut down Beirut airport again. Various reports on the Israeli raid put the death toll at four and 10, with one guerrilla missing and eight wounded. Thick black smoke billowed from the stricken guerrilla posts. The raid was carried out by four Israeli-made Kfir jets while four U.S.-made F-16s flew cover overhead.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Friday that he would abide by any decision Lebanon made on disarming Palestinians in refugee camps in Lebanon. More than 350,000 Palestinian refugees are in Lebanon, including thousands of armed guerrillas from the mainstream Palestinian Fatah faction, in densely populated camps around the country that are off-limits to the Lebanese government. Authorities fear that there would be bloodshed if they went into the camps.

Palestinians in Lebanon buried 19 people killed in Israel's most destructive air raid of the year and subsequent ground fighting, then fled as Israeli warplanes streaked low overhead but did not attack. The dead were taken by small funeral processions to the main cemetery of the southern port of Sidon and a Palestinian graveyard in the nearby village of Darb es Sim after Muslim noon prayers. Sirens wailed as mourners started home to the Miye ou Miye refugee camp, target of the air raid.

As he prepares to visit Europe to appeal for support against Palestinian violence, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has come under investigation in Belgium for a 19-year-old wartime massacre in Lebanon--a case that aims to expand the reach of cross-border justice for crimes against humanity. A prosecutor's decision to open the inquiry, under a Belgian law permitting trial of any leader for war crimes committed anywhere, drew a furious Israeli protest.

Emboldened by President Bush's "axis of evil" speech, the Israeli government has launched an international campaign against Iran ahead of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's trip to the United States this week. Israel charges that Iran is arming the Palestinians and Hezbollah, the Shiite Muslim militia in Lebanon, to further destabilize a region rocked by more than 16 months of bloodshed.

Four Palestinian men were sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for the assassination of a Jordanian diplomat whose slaying jolted a nation recovering from civil war.

Only one of the four, Youssef Shaaban, 29, was in custody. The three others were convicted in absentia.

A Palestinian guerrilla group said Sunday that bodyguards foiled an attempt by agents paid by Israel to assassinate one of its leaders in Beirut. The group, the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, said it would avenge the attack. Six gunmen tried to assassinate Mohammed abu Samra, a member of its central leadership, a few days ago and clashed with his bodyguards, it said in a statement. One of the attackers was wounded in the clash and two others were later captured by security forces.

Saleh was an official of the Revolutionary Council of Fatah.
