Friedmann will be examining the issue after Vice Premier Haim Ramon called to fire back on Palestinian rocket launchers even if they are located in civilian zones. IDF continues to hit Gaza. Video: Infolive.tv Speaking at Sunday morning's government session, Ramon said: "Why don't we shoot at the sources of the fire? According to international law, we are allowed to do it. The issue was legally examined during the Second Lebanon War and the conclusion was that if they fire from a village, we are allowed to fire back even if this is a populated area."
