The new head of Israel's Labor Party declared yesterday that he intends to pull out of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's governing coalition, setting the stage for a period of political disarray that could bog down Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking efforts for months. "We will inform the prime minister that we wish to separate," Amir Peretz, best known for his leadership of Israel's biggest trade federation, said hours after his come-from-behind victory over veteran statesman Shimon Peres in the contest for the party leadership.

JERUSALEM -- The resignation of the Israeli army's chief of staff over failings in last summer's war against Hezbollah in Lebanon brought renewed calls yesterday for the departure of his superiors: Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz. The announcement early yesterday that the army chief, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz, was stepping down increased the pressure on Olmert, whose popularity has plunged since the war and who now faces a criminal investigation, announced Tuesday, into his role in the government's sale of a major bank.

JERUSALEM -- Prime Minister Ariel Sharon agreed to hold early elections in Israel in late February or March at a meeting yesterday with Amir Peretz, the new leader of the Labor Party. Early elections became likely after Peretz defeated veteran Labor leader Shimon Peres in an upset victory in party primaries last week. Peretz, a dovish longtime union leader, said he would take Labor out of Sharon's governing coalition and force an election before it is due in November 2006. After meeting Sharon in Tel Aviv, Peretz said he would accept any date Sharon chose in the agreed time frame.

JERUSALEM -- Israeli officials said yesterday that they would continue military actions aimed at stopping Palestinian rocket fire from the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, Israeli troops battled militants there during the latest raid. Israel's security Cabinet directed the military to draw up plans for a possible wide offensive against militants who fire the crude Kassam rockets, which killed an Israeli man Tuesday. Any broader Gaza incursion, which is advocated by some military commanders and other security officials, would have to be approved separately.

JERUSALEM -- Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz broke yesterday with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert by calling for an independent probe into their government's handling of the recent war in Lebanon -- their first serious disagreement since becoming coalition partners four months ago. Olmert and Peretz have come under intense public criticism for the less-than-decisive outcome of the conflict, which ended with a cease-fire Aug. 14 after 34 days of fighting....

SDEROT, Israel -- From the time he could first vote, Shimon Sinai has put his trust in Israel's leading right-wing party, the Likud, believing that Israel needed to be tough with the Palestinians, be strong on defense and embrace free markets. But when Israel holds parliamentary elections in March, the 42-year-old owner of a soup kitchen for the poor in this hardscrabble southern Israeli town plans to cast his vote for the newest, most talked-about political star in Israel, the Labor Party's Amir Peretz.

AVIVIM, Israel -- Traffic is moving slowly this week on the roads leading south from the Israel-Lebanon border. Trucks loaded with armored vehicles and other war machinery inch down the winding, narrow roads from the front lines. Clutches of weary soldiers with rifles slung across their backs wait in the shade for bus rides. Other soldiers trudge in the August heat, flagging down passing cars for lifts home. There is little fanfare to this war's end. No honking of horns, no pumping of fists, no victory signs.

JERUSALEM -- Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert declared yesterday that Israel had no intention of ending its battle against Hezbollah anytime soon, despite a fragile lull in fighting that allowed some humanitarian supplies to reach civilians in war-battered Lebanon. Israeli officials said they would expand the ground offensive and described a 48-hour hiatus in major airstrikes as a "humanitarian gesture" rather than any prelude to a speedy cease-fire, which Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had said could be reached this week.

JERUSALEM -- Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said yesterday that his centrist Kadima Party will work to form a governing coalition with the left-leaning Labor Party as a senior partner, an alliance that would promote his plan for a withdrawal from large areas of the West Bank. Olmert's announcement, with Labor leader Amir Peretz at his side, was the first concrete indication of the shape of the next Israeli government after several days of political jockeying after last week's parliamentary election.
