Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Tuesday ruled out negotiations with the captors of IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit and said the army would strike all terrorists involved in the abduction. "We will strike all terror elements and all those who strike the state of Israel will not be immune," Olmert told the Negev conference in Beersheba.
