Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has reportedly approved the summons of 30,000 reserve soldiers. The troops can be called into action by the military at any point, an IDF spokesman told Israel’s Channel 2 TV, as quoted by AFP.

Brigadier General Yoav Mordechai said the army was in the process of expanding the Gaza operation.

“The defense minister approved a few minutes ago, based on the army’s request, the recruitment of another 30,000 soldiers. We will determine how many of them will be called in…all options are on the table,” he said.

Some of those called up would be dispatched to replace existing units in their routine duties.
