The IDF attacked a Qassam-launcher in northern Gaza on Saturday evening, just minutes before a Qassam rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed near Zikim, south of Ashkelon. No injuries or damage were reported in the rocket attack. The IDF attack appears to signify a return to the army's previous policy in Gaza and Israeli forces are now authorized to open fire at Palestinian rocket launching cells prior to, during or shortly after their attempt to fire Qassams toward Israel's southern region. 11/09/08
