Israel Looks to Mobilize 75,000 Reservists as Ground War Looms

As the Israel-Hamas conflict escalates toward all-out war, Reuters reports that Defense Minister Ehud Barak is seeking government approval to call up 75,000 reservists.

The move is another sign of a looming ground invasion.

Hamas rockets today targeted Jerusalem, the first time in decades that the city — holy to both Jews and Muslims — has been under siege.

Meanwhile, Israeli jets pounded targets in Gaza, including a reported strike on the home of the Hamas commander for southern Gaza.
