      Reservists explain how they left their families to help mobilize for a possible ground invasion n Gaza. A possible ceasefire may scratch the plan.

      “Yesterday, my battalion commander called me up. I dropped my daughter off at my parents, we ate dinner, and went back to the south,” said one reservist.

      Another reservist, who lives in the south, said that after a siren sounded a warning of an incoming rocket, “I got a call from Eran {his commander} saying, “Come on. Let’s go.”

      Tens of thousands of Israeli responded to “Tzav 8” emergency orders, many of them issued on the Sabbath.
