IDF calls up small number of reservists amid Hezbollah tunnel op

The army is calling up a small number of reservists as it prepares for a potential retaliation by Hezbollah in response to the IDF’s operation to destroy tunnels build by the terrorist group that stretch from Lebanon into northern Israel.

Additional tanks, artillery cannons, and armored personnel carriers are spotted on highways leading up to northern Israel.

As of tonight, the IDF is refraining from a mass call-up of reservists, preferring instead to enlist those from select air defense and Military Intelligence units, as it does during most periods of increased tensions and unrest.

The Air Force units are being called up to help man Israel’s various air defense batteries. The Hezbollah terrorist militia is believed to have an arsenal of over 100,000 rockets and missiles — larger than that of many European countries.
