Israel's Jenin Operation Reignites Palestinian Anger

Violence between Palestinians and Israelis has become a near daily occurrence

A thick crust of black ash has settled on the pavements and roads in the centre of Jenin.

It comes from barricades of burning tyres set up by young Palestinian men, who prowl streets where they might see an Israeli jeep. Some of them carry rocks or small home-made bombs to hurl at passing Israeli vehicles.

At times, armed Palestinians emerge from the tyre smoke to fire at the Israelis.
