The Israeli security cabinet is scheduled to meet Monday to discuss measures against Qassam rockets, the division of responsibility between army and police for the intended evacuation of settlers, and advance payments to voluntarily leaving settlers.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon ended his summer vacation and is due to office on Monday.

Despite extending military operations in the northern Gaza Strip region, Qassam rockets continued to fall on the southern Israeli city of Sderot and near by areas.

Army and police have been at loggerheads over who will evacuate settlers from the Gaza Strip and some West Bank settlements.

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz wants army to have overall responsibility, but for police to be in charge of dealing with civilians.

Public Security Minister Tzachi Hanegbi wants army to solely shoulder the responsibility for the evacuation.
