Israel to outfit all residents with gas masks
Saturday 26th December, 2009
Israel is to outfit its entire population with gas masks.
The distribution will commence in two months.
No reason has been given by the Israeli government for providing its residents with gas masks.
There has been no indication from any country that it is planning to
attack Israel, nor is any country in the Middle East likely to engage
Israel in chemical warfare.
The move has heightened expectations that Israel may launch an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities which could spark an unconventional response. It is not known however whether Iran has any chemical or biological weapons capability.
Rumors have been circulating in the Middle East that Israel is
preparing for another war on Lebanon to rein in Hezbollah. That
organization however is not known to harbor chemical or biological
The only country in the region suspected of having a major chemical and biological weapons program is Israel itself, however it is very unlikely Israel would launch such an unconventional attack.
Nonetheless in February Israel will roll out gas masks to every
resident in the country.
