JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israel approved early Friday the draft of 18,000 new reserve soldiers, the army said, as it launched a ground operation in the Gaza Strip.

"Following the approval of the government, the IDF increased the draft of reserve forces to 18,000 troops," the army said in a statement.

A spokeswoman told AFP the decision raised the overall number of soldiers called in since the start of Operation Protective Edge to 65,000, without saying how many of them had actually been mobilized.

My goodness. Does it takes that many to go after few Hamas militants, fighters, terrorists or whatever Israel wants to call them in a city that anyone can walk it in either direction. I guess when its finance by the US taxpayers approve by the US congress there is no limit to their generosity.
