Israeli action against the continued Kassam rocket fire into the western Negev lacks focus, and must be refined immediately, Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz said on Sunday. "Our goals in Gaza are not clearly defined," Mofaz told ministers during the weekly cabinet meeting. "Is it deterrence? Is it a reduction or cessation of rocket fire and terror?" "We need to decide now what our goals are, and then decide on our course of action," the transporation minister continued. "We need to act decisively against the four centers of gravity: The leadership, the military wing, the infrastructure, and the money. Why not hit Mahmoud Zahar, who is encouraging the fire."
