IDF fires barrages at Gaza Kassam launch sites

IDF began shooting artillery fire toward the Gaza fields from which two Kassam rockets were fired on Monday afternoon. While politicians have called for a harsher response to the rocket fire, the latest barrage is a continuation of the same tactic used as a response since the pullout in August. The two Kassams that fell Monday afternoon landed in open areas in western Negev kibbutzes. The rockets were reported to be exceptionally long - some estimated that they were as long as one-and-a-half meters.
