One teen-ager was killed as Palestinian demonstrators clashed with Israeli troops in the West Bank and Gaza Strip during angry protests against the U.S. air strike against Iraq. Shouting, “Beloved Saddam, hit Tel Aviv,” the protesters burned Israeli and American flags and yelled angry taunts against President Clinton, who only days before had been hailed as a hero by Palestinians for his visit to Gaza.
