The Israeli army has announced a new campaign to prepare the nation’s citizens for an attack with chemical or biological weapons.
The campaign will offer civilians detailed information on how to protect their homes against weapons of mass destruction — how to choose a protected room and how to seal doors and windows against a WMD attack.
Information will be provided in a guidebook to be distributed to every household, as well as through television broadcasts, a Web site, and a telephone information center.
The Israeli army in recent months has collected hundreds of thousands of gas masks it had distributed to civilians following the outbreak of the 1991 Gulf War, according to the Web site spacewar.com.
Israelis had feared that the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein would fire missiles at Israel loaded with WMDs.
