IDF plans 2016 reservist call up to cope with persistent violence

Due to persisting Palestinian attacks, the IDF’s Central Command will call up reserves at the start of 2016 to free up conscripted battalions for training, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said on Monday.

“The situation can continue – I don’t know for how long,” he told reporters at the ministry in Tel Aviv.

All of the recent attacks have been carried out by lone attackers, and in recent weeks, no Palestinian organizations have been able to pull off any organized attacks, though this could change in the future, Ya’alon said.
