Up to 25 thousand reservists will be called up to the Israeli army

Up to 25 thousand reservists will be called up to the Israel Defense Forces. This was announced on August 5 by the Minister of Defense of the country Benny Gantz.

“Based on an assessment of the security situation, it was decided to recruit up to 25,000 reserve fighters to reinforce the forces of the southern command, air defense, rear, combat units and command headquarters. The reserves were completed by an exceptional order of the Minister of Defense, ”a press release from the Ministry of Defense says.

On August 5, Israel launched Operation Dawn against Islamic Jihad. Attacks were made on the Gaza Strip, and a special situation was declared in the border areas in the rear of Israel.

As a result of the shelling, one of the commanders of Islamic Jihad, Taysir al-Jabari, who commanded the military wing of the al-Quds Brigades in the northern part of the enclave, was eliminated.

The health service of the Gaza Strip at the same time reported seven victims of shelling, including a five-year-old girl. Another 40 people were injured of varying severity.

The Palestinians, as part of the peace process with Israel, demand that the future borders between the two sovereign states follow the lines that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War, with a possible exchange of territories. They hope to create their own state on the West Bank of the Jordan River and in the Gaza Strip, and they want to make East Jerusalem their capital. Israel refuses to return to the 1967 borders and divide Jerusalem.
