The 12th month of the Palestinian uprising in the occupied territories began with the fatal shooting by Israeli soldiers of a 3-year-old Arab boy.

Elsewhere in the occupied lands Wednesday, 13 Palestinians, most of them teenagers, were shot and wounded by troops.Meanwhile, Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's 10-member inner cabinet debated PLO plans to declare an independent Palestinian state at the meeting of the governing Palestine National Council set to begin Saturday in Algeria.

Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Dan Shomron warned that any violence coinciding with the meeting will be crushed.

Diplomatic relations were curtailed in June 1987 after an Iranian diplomat was arrested on shoplifting charges in Britain and militants kidnapped and beat up a British diplomat in Tehran.
