In the fiercest clashes here in years, Palestinian police and Israeli soldiers fought deadly gun battles Monday, as protests exploded across Palestinian territory, leaving hundreds of people wounded and dealing a massive blow to the pursuit of peace in the Middle East. Such an eruption of hostility had long been feared by many Palestinians, who said the sluggishness of on-again, off-again peace negotiations was contributing to rapidly festering discontent.

On a day and at a place holy to both Jews and Muslims, Israeli security forces battled thousands of enraged Palestinians on Friday, engulfing Jerusalem's most hotly contested sacred shrine in chaos. It was the second day of skirmishing within the walled Old City here, at a site known to Jews as Temple Mount and to Arabs as Haram al Sharif, or noble sanctuary. Rioting spread to other areas.

Israeli troops shot and killed three Palestinian youths in the West Bank in surging violence that has left 10 Arabs dead in the occupied territories since Friday. Troops killed one teen-ager Sunday night in the village of Toubas during a demonstration in support of Gaza Palestinians and killed two Monday in the nearby village of Tamoun during stone-throwing protests against the arrest of a wanted man.

For several hours Monday, the violence seemed almost routine: Palestinian protesters threw rocks and gasoline bombs at Israeli soldiers on the northern edge of this West Bank city, and the Israelis hit back, firing tear gas, concussion grenades and rubber bullets. Then, with frightening speed, everything changed. Several rounds of live fire, apparently from Palestinian police, sent a group of civilians hurrying toward a small hotel nearby, seeking refuge.
