Israel in partial army reserve call-up over Syria

The Israeli cabinet authorised on Wednesday a partial call-up of army reservists amid growing expectations of a foreign military strike on neighbouring Syria, army radio reported.

The unspecified number of troops are attached to units stationed in the north of the country, which borders both Lebanon and the Golan Heights, seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War, the report said.
