Gas mask distribution resumes in Israel
|Follow j. on||and|
The Israel Defense Forces’ Homefront Command resumed its distribution of gas mask kits to the public on Sept. 8, as the possibility of a U.S. attack on Syria — and of subsequent Syrian retaliation against Israel — remained ambiguous.
Thousands of Israelis recently descended on gas mask distribution centers, many of which had to close their doors after running out of kits.
The Homefront Command said its distribution centers would work their usual hours, with additional centers operating in Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan and Bat Yam, in central Israel, and in Haifa.
Meanwhile, an Iron Dome anti-missile defense system was positioned in the Jerusalem area on Sept. 8, reportedly for the first time.
The Israeli military did not comment on its decision to locate the system near Jerusalem. — jns.org & jta
