MK Gilad Erdan (Likud) called on Defense Minister Amir Peretz to enact Section 87 of Defense Emergency Regulations and tell the military censor to restrict media publication of the exact locations of rocket landings. "The public feels a need to keep up with what's going on, but it is still necessary to release strictly general information that's not likely to aid the enemy and endanger the security of Israel and its citizens," Erdan said. He added that publishing the exact locations of the landings "allows the enemy forces to improve their capabilities and aim the rockets more effectively."
