Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz will meet with Prime Minister-elect Ehud Olmert on Tuesday to formulate an Israeli response to the suicide bombing that killed nine people in Tel Aviv's Neve Sha'anan neighborhood on Monday. Security officials said Monday night that the recommendations would focus on targeting the Islamic Jihad, sealing off Samaria from the rest of the West Bank and cracking down on Palestinians illegally residing in Israel. "Don't expect to see tanks rolling into Nablus," one official said. "But we will launch more widespread operations against the Islamic Jihad."
