Netanyahu Vows to Destroy Hamas Tunnels
Israel calls up 16,000 reservists
Israel's military announced Thursday that it had called up 16,000 reservists as the country's Prime Minister vowed to destroy tunnels used by the Islamic militant group Hamas to attack soldiers and civilians inside Israel.
"We have neutralized dozens of terror tunnels and we are committed to complete this mission, with or without a cease-fire," Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday. "Therefore I will not agree to any offer that does not allow the military to complete this important mission for the security of the people of Israel."
Israel said that most of the 32 tunnels it has uncovered have now been demolished and that getting rid of the remainder will take no more than a few days.
