Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Tuesday that Israel "will not curb its response to the rocket fire emanating from Gaza, even if it is nothing more than a trickle. We have retaliated and we will continue to retaliate.
"Any provocation, no matter how small, will be met with a harsh response," he added. Olmert was speaking at a park inauguration in the northern Israeli city of Akko. (Roni Sofer)
