Knesset committee to meet on approving home front emergency, reserves call-up

The Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee will hold a special closed-door session on Thursday regarding the war with Hamas.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to appear before the committee.

The influential panel will discuss the government’s declaration of a “special situation,” which allows the military’s Home Front Command to restrict gatherings and close off areas, as well as a government request to officially approve a general call-up of military reservists, among other matters, the Knesset’s spokesperson says.
