IDF skeptical that man stopped Kassam with body

The IDF's Southern Command received a report on Monday, channeled from the Palestinian Authority's Gaza district coordinating office, stating that a Palestinian was seriously wounded when he placed his own body in front of the Kassam rocket launched late Monday night from the Gaza Strip into the western Negev. The IDF said it was skeptical of the report. The army reported Monday night that the rocket was fired from an area between Beit Hanoun and Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza.
