( The Israel Defense Forces on Thursday announced that it will deploy more troops in Judea and Samaria following Wednesday's Palestinian terror attack that killed four Israelis in Tel Aviv.

"In accordance with situation assessments, the Judea and Samaria Division will be reinforced by two additional battalions," the IDF said in a statement. 

The village of Yatta, where the two Palestinian terrorists lived, was put on lockdown, with nobody allowed in or out without the IDF's permission.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Thursday told reporters that he "does not intend to make do with just talk."

"I came here to salute the people of Tel Aviv who endured another [terror attack], and despite this know how to return to life as normal," Lieberman said as he stood in Sarona market, the site of the attack.

"I do not intend to elaborate on the steps we intend to take, but...I don't intend to make do with just words," he said.
