With continual rocket fire from terrorists in Gaza, it sounds like Israel is preparing to invade the Gaza Strip. Of course I’m sure they’d also like to prevent such invasion which is why this information is being reported. but no doubt this isn’t just a bluff:
YWN – Defense Minister Ehud Barak sought government approval on Friday to mobilize up to 75,000 reserve troops for Israel’s Gaza campaign, political sources said, in a sign of preparations for a possible ground offensive.
The sources, speaking after Palestinian rockets were fired at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, said ministers were being polled by telephone by the cabinet secretary to approve the call-up.
According to the IDF, over 16,000 reservists have already been mobilized, out of the 30,000 previously approved by the Israeli government.
