The Israeli government has mobilized 300,000 reserve soldiers in possible preparation for an offensive into the Gaza Strip.
This comes as a large number of hostages have been taken and moved into Palestinian areas. Over 1,000 are now confirmed dead in Israel from recent terror attacks.
Chief military spokesperson Rear-Admiral Daniel Hagari said control of those communities had been re-established but that isolated clashes continued as some gunmen remained active, reported Reuters.
Hagari said the IDF is now clearing border areas before any operations forward are planned.
“We are now carrying out searches in all of the communities and clearing the area,” he said in a televised briefing.
“We have never drafted so many reservists on such a scale,” he said. “We are going on the offensive.”
Israel has conducted large numbers of strikes inside Gaza at Hamas targets.
