JERUSALEM, AP – Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Monday said he has ordered the army to prepare a “broad” military operation against militants in the Gaza Strip following the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier.

“It should be clear that there will be no immunity to those who are holding him,” Olmert said in a speech at a business conference in Jerusalem.

Olmert also said he holds the entire Palestinian leadership for the safety of the soldier, Cpl. Gilad Shalit.

Shalit was seized in a cross-border raid early Sunday. Two Israeli soldiers were also killed in the attack.
