Economic woes push Israel to demobilize reservists

The Israeli Ynet website reported that the Israeli military forces are demobilizing reservists on a wide scale, without providing an official statement on the matter.

The Israeli outlet's political affairs expert, Yossi Yehoshua, said that the Israeli military is demobilizing reservists without providing the public with an official announcement of the policy.

It is worth noting that the number of reservists demobilized cannot be released, further indicating the secrecy under which the military command is operating.

According to the outlet, a senior officer in the Israeli military said that there is an intent to relieve more Israeli soldiers of their duties, as the military command attempts to conserve its forces as its aggression on the Gaza Strip drags on.

Calling up reservists to the occupation's military has heavily cost "Israel's" economy, according to previous reports that indicated that the Israeli workforce had suffered from the absence of reservists from their workspaces.

In a similar context, the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics reported a sharp increase in unemployment among Israelis, as the percentage of unemployed workers has risen from 3.4% in September 2023, to 9.6% in November.
