Israel's Cabinet OKs activating up to 75,000 reservists

Israel's Cabinet on Friday approved the activation of up to 75,000 reservists given the conflict, said the spokesman for the prime minister.

Israel's military said earlier in the day that 30,000 troops are being mobilized for a possible move into Gaza.

Rockets landed near Israel's two most populous cities as fighting between Israel and Hamas militants persisted with no immediate end in sight.
