Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is scheduled to hold a number of telephone conversations with world leaders Friday to shore up international legitimacy for the Gaza operation and ensure “room to maneuver.”

Earlier in the day, at an emergency cabinet meeting, the ministers unanimously approved the security cabinet decision that authorized the ground operation.

The ministers were briefed on the situation by Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen Benny Gantz and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon. The minsters were told that the IDF is prepared to expand the operation, and the IDF will be given the time to carry it out.
