Palestinians threw firebombs and shot at Israeli soldiers during clashes in the West Bank town of Nablus. The soldiers responded Sunday with gunfire that left two Palestinians dead. In the Gaza Strip, another Palestinian was shot dead when Israel used tanks to clear a road blocked by Palestinians protesting the presence of Israeli armor at the Karni Crossing into Israel. The fighting in Gaza occurred as Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat proclaimed that the “blessed” intifada, or Palestinian uprising, “will continue.”
