JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli government has given the military permission to mobilize up to 40,000 additional reservists as it steps up an offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Tuesday's decision came hours after Israel launched an offensive aimed at stopping weeks of heavy rocket fire out of Gaza.

The Israeli military said there were no immediate plans to call up the reservists, but the order was a contingency if the offensive needs to be expanded.

Israeli officials say the open-ended operation could go on for some time.
