Israel's Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, reacting to a recent rise in Palestinian attacks, promised Thursday to use "an iron fist" against acts of "terror," and said no restrictions would be placed on Israeli security forces.


Olmert spoke one day after one Israeli settler killed and another wounded in to shooting incident in the West Bank.


"We will use an iron first against any attempt to renew terror activity anywhere," Olmert told reporters during a press conference in Jerusalem. "There are no restraints on security forces to use any means necessary to stop terror attacks."


"No one who fires off a Qassam rocket will have a moment's rest, because we shall seek him out everywhere, track him everywhere, reach him and make sure he is not able to do it," Olmert said.
