The Israeli army started calling up 16,000 reservists on Friday, as officials said the Jewish state was preparing for a possible ground offensive into the Gaza Strip.
“They’re distributing emergency call-up notices now, the process has started,” an army spokeswoman told AFP.
“As part of Operation Pillar of Defence, the IDF (army) will begin recruiting 16,000 reservists,” the military said on its official Twitter feed.
Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak on Thursday approved the call-up of 30,000 reserve soldiers, who can be drafted into action by the military at any point, the army’s official spokesman said.
