MK (Labor) Nachman Shai warned today, Wednesday, 19 Shevat 5773 that 40% of Israelis are exposed to a chemical weapon attack.
Shai, the masterful IDF spokesman during the 1991 First Gulf War explains “the government should resume manufacture of the gas mask protection kids in Israel. Today, only 6 of every 10 Israeli will receive kits due to the shortage, which is alarming. We are facing an awful failure that the government avoids addressing. Leakage of chemical weapons from Syrian into enemy hands is an immediate threat followed by other issues that should compel the government to produce more kits towards accommodating 40% of the country that remains vulnerable today.
