Israeli Cabinet Calls Up 75,000 Reservists as Gaza Invasion Looms
Last Ditch Effort to De-Escalate Conflict as Israel Spurns Ceasefire
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman insisted Israel isn’t interested in a ceasefire right now because he believes it would only last for a couple of weeks anyhow, while Defense Minister Ehud Barak has repeatedly said the fighting is only just beginning.
How soon an invasion could begin is unclear, though Israel has been rushing tanks and armored vehicles to the Gaza border since yesterday. Depending on the size of the invasion it could happen in a matter of days.
