Maj. -Gen. (res.) Yom Tov Samiya said on Sunday morning that the IDF would be forced to draft reserve forces in order to take control of the smuggling tunnels and weapons reaching Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Army Radio reported. The retired general said that it was a mistake for the IDF to leave the Philadelphi route, which separates between Israel and Egypt and where most of the smuggling tunnels are located. Samiya, most recently chosen as deputy commander of the southern command during an emergency, was said to be in good contact with OC Southern Command, Maj. -Gen. Yoav Galant.
