IDF: No Emergency Call Up for September


The Spokesperson's Office of the Israel Defense Forces issued a statement, Thursday afternoon, denying reports that there was an emergency callup of reserves in anticipation of possible violence resulting from the Palestinian Authority's application to the United Nations for recognition as an independent state.

The statement called the reports "erroneous and irresponsible", adding that if the people who had started them had checked with the Spokesperson's Office, the report could have been prevented.
