Following repeated suicide bombing attacks, including a bombing in the coastal city of Netanya which killed 22 Israelis and injured over 100, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon ordered the most penetrating military incursion into areas under the control of the PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY (PA) since the outbreak of the second infitada. The campaign, which is expected to last several weeks, has isolated PA Chairman Yassir Arafat in his Ramallah compound. Standoffs continue at the headquarters of the Palestinian Preventative Security service in Ramallah and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. In related news, the US rejected European calls for an international conference to mediate an end to the crisis, claiming that the immediate problem was to end "terrorism and violence in the region."
