How can you not love Israel?
EREZ CROSSING, Israel – Israel has already begun calling up thousands of reservists as it prepares for a long-ranging military operation in the Gaza Strip, according to military officials who briefed BuzzFeed.
Earlier Tuesday, Israel’s security cabinet approved the use of 40,000 reservists, telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that thousands more would be sent if Israel expanded its offensive into Gaza in the weeks to come.
“At the moment we have begun the calling up of reservists, and the deployment of active soldiers to the Gaza border area. We are preparing for every eventuality,” said the officer, who spoke to reporters in a background briefing. He said that “wide-ranging and intense” air strikes would hit Gaza Tuesday night, in response to upwards of 60 rockets that were fired from Gaza into southern and central Israel.
“We will do more than mow the law in Gaza. We will scorch it,” he said.
