Israel will act "firmly, responsibly and wisely" to preserve the "quiet and security" that has existed here over the last two years, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Wednesday night, a few hours after the terror bombing in Jerusalem.

Netanyahu said that his government has established a policy on security matters whereby any attacks on Israeli citizens are met by "firm responses."

The result of this policy, he said, has been two years of "quiet and security."

"Recently there are elements who want to disturb that quiet," he said. "They are trying to test our determination and the country's staying power. They will discover that the government, the army and the Israeli public has a steel will to protect the state and its citizens."

Netanyahu's comments came as he was boarding a plane for Russia and a 24-hour visit there.
