Olmert Approves Military Actions in Gaza

A series of military actions against the Palestinian Authority's terrorists in Gaza were approved by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, in a security consultation he held in his bureau in Jerusalem Wednesday.

The military steps will target terror rocket launching squads and their commanders, disrupt the terror gangs' ability to launch the rockets and damage terrorist infrastructure.

Olmert said that Israel cannot continue to restrain itself in the face of strikes against its civilians, and said that the civilians being targeted should be aided by the government and the IDF's Home Front. Evacuation of civilians, said Olmert, is a victory for terror.
