Israel's government is seeking ministerial approval to recruit up to 75,000 reserve soldiers as it presses a relentless campaign against the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, the cabinet secretary said on Friday.

"Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser has started to conduct a phone vote among government ministers for approval to recruit 75,000 reserve soldiers," Hauser said in a statement on his official Facebook page.
