Mayor: Launch areas should be razed or controlled

Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal called upon the government to act against the Kassam rockets. He asserted that the solution was not military activity by isolated operations, but rather either decimating the area from where rockets are launched, or full control of that territory. "The Palestinians haven't changed their policy and Israel hasn't changed its policy and this situation will continue forever," the mayor said. He added, in an interview to Israel Radio, that Defense Minister Amir Peretz was doing a good job and that the problem was in the government's policy.
