Jerusalem (JTA) — The in-
tifada, the Palestinian upris-
ing that was believed only a
few months ago to have
fizzled out almost complete-
ly, has come back with a
vengeance in recent days,
five years after it first
The latest round of
violence, a combination of
daring terrorist attacks and
massive demonstrations,
began early last week with
the killing of three Israeli
soldiers, whose vehicle came
under fire on a road bypass-
ing the city of Gaza.
A similar terrorist attack
took place in the West Bank,
when terrorists opened fire
on a military vehicle at the
southern entrance to
Hebron. An IDF soldier, Sgt.
Yuval Tutanji, 24, of Eilat,
was killed in the attack.
The Islamic fundamenta-
list Hamas movement took
responsibility for that at-
tack, which was believed to
be the work of its military
wing, the Az a-Din al-
Kassam group.
Another Israeli was killed
two nights earlier in a
shootout with terrorists in
the village of Anza, south of
the West Bank town of
Inspector Sasson Mordoch
of an anti-terror unit of the
border police, was fatally
shot as the unit attempted to
apprehend a wanted ter-
rorist, Moussa Brahama,
head of the Islamic Jihad
movement in the Jenin area.
But most of the violence
was centered in the Gaza
Strip, where massive riots
broke out over the weekend.
Three Palestinians were
killed in clashes with the
army, and at least 75 were
wounded, as hundreds of
residents of the Jabalya
refugee camp stormed a
military outpost and almost
took it over. The soldiers
needed to fire live bullets to
deter the crowd.
Violence continued leav-
ing one Palestinian dead and
at least 20 more wounded.
Fifteen Israel Defense Force
soldiers and border police of-
ficers were also injured in
rock-throwing incidents.
Riots began as masked
men staged a nationalist pa-
rade at the Nuseirat refugee
camp in the Gaza Strip. The
security forces dispersed the
crowed by force, as most
refugee camps in the strip
continued to be under

Another terrorist incident
was averted over the
weekend, when a booby-
trapped car was discovered
on the Hebron Road in
Jerusalem, shortly before it
was to detonate. The car con-
tained two gas canisters,
each connected to an ex-
plosive charge.
The Israeli Cabinet, sit-
ting as a ministerial defense
committee, discussed the de-
teriorating situation.
Military experts expressed
deep concern over the
number of weapons in the
hands of the terrorists and
the fact that they are stag-
ing increasingly more dar-
ing attacks.
The opposition reacted an-
grily to the developments,
accusing the government for
failing to cope with the
situation. The Likud
Knesset faction decided to

present the Knesset with a
motion of no-confidence in
the government.
Moshe Katsav, chairman
of the Likud Knesset faction,
said there was a direct link
between the gestures the
government had made
toward the Palestinians in
the peace process and the
escalation in the territories.
The Tsomet party said it
was time to replace the
government with a new
government that would
"safeguard the public's safe-
The far-right Moledet par-
ty demanded an interruption
of the peace negotiations
with the Palestinians and
the immediate implementa-
tion of the death penalty for
terrorist murderers.
Aharon Domb, a leader of
the settlement movement in
Hebron, said that the most
frightening thing about the
new situation was that
"everybody was getting used
to it," as if terrorist attacks
had become a matter of daily
routine. He, too, blamed the
government for having fail-
ed to address the situation
