Collective punishment: Qassams and power blackout

Israel is reluctant to inflict power blackouts on the Palestinians in Gaza, as these would be "Collective Punishment." Palestinian terrorists have no such qualms.
Qassams cause blackout in Sderot
Rocket fired at southern town hits power line, damages several buildings; a number of people suffer from shock
Shmulik Hadad YNET Published: 11.04.07, 13:08 / Israel News

Three Qassam rockets were fired Sunday afternoon from the northern Gaza Strip towards the western Negev. One of the rockets hit a house, causing damage to the building and its surroundings.

IDF forces arrived at the scene shortly afterwards and disposed of the
rocket's debree.

A second rocket hit a power line, starting a small fire. Several people suffered from shock. The damaged power line also resulted in a temporary blackout in Sderot.

"We heard three loud explosions, but the Color Red alert system didn't sound. My whole house was shaking," one of the residents told Ynet.

Several of Sderot's residents arrived at the house and confronted the IDF forces, protesting what they called the military's helplessness in fighting the Qassams.

On Sunday morning, the al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad's military wing, fired three Qassam rockets at Israel. There were no reports of injuries or damage.

In response, the IDF struck in the Gaza Strip, killing five Palestinians.

Also Sunday, Ynet reported that Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Attorney General Menachem Mazuz had a heated exchange of words following Mazuz's decision not to approve the plan to restrict power supply to the Gaza Strip.

Barak was reported to have told Mazuz, "You not be making the decisions for me."
