Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Sunday warned that Israel would hit back hard if guerrillas in Lebanon continued firing on Israel's north. Olmert said he hoped Israel's initial response, air strikes against three Palestinian bases near Beirut, would bring an end to the attacks from Lebanon, but the violence was continuing. "They will receive a clear and harsh response with no hesitation if they do not stop," Olmert warned, calling the attacks "provocative and dangerous." He was speaking to reporters in Jerusalem after meeting President Moshe Katsav.
