Palestinians in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem staged violent protests and a general strike to mark the 11th anniversary of the 1987-1993 intifada. The demonstrators, continuing days of clashes with Israeli troops, demanded the release of Palestinian activists held in Israeli jails. A 17-year-old Palestinian was reported killed by Israeli gunfire and scores of others were injured in Wednesday’s clashes. Meanwhile, Palestinian officials said some 2,000 prisoners are participating in a hunger strike that began more than a week ago to press their demand for freedom.
