The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee unanimously voted Tuesday in favor of increasing the number of reservists called to participate in Operation Pillar of Defense to 70,000.

"Following my conversation with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu this morning, I can say that continuing to call up reservists is relevant and the IDF is prepared for all scenarios," Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Ronnie Bar-On (Kadima) said ahead of the vote.

Bar-On also said Israel should see Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's mediation between Israel and Hamas as a guarantee of peace and quiet in case of a ceasefire,.
