Ya'alon: If Needed, We'll Call Up More Reservists

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Monday morning, that the emphasis of the Protective Edge counter-terror campaign was to deal with the rockets being launched at Israel and terror tunnels being used for the launching of terror attacks.

Ya'alon said, "We are prepared to continue action as much as needed and, if necessary, we'll recruit more troops to the reserves to bring peace from the Gaza Strip."
