IDF Finally Takes Stonethrowers Seriously

Israel Matzav notes a change in IDF policy--for now only in Lebanon.
The soldiers now have permission to shoot back if rocks are being thrown at them.

First, them shoot in the air.
Then, they are allowed to shoot at the legs of the person throwing rocks at them.
Also, if they feel their lives are in danger, they have permission to shoot to kill.

It is a policy that is a long time coming.
Let's hope it soon becomes IDF policy everywhere.

Yes, I was wondering when Mr. Jonas was going to start doing something about those stone throwers in Newark.
