Toxic war in the Streets of Tel Aviv
It was back in 1991during the Gulf war, between Iraq and USA that Saddam Hussein fired dozens of missiles at Israel, even though Israel never attacked Iraq.
Back then there was a big fear that those missiles would be Chemical weapons, so Israel gave Gas Masks to all the population with the order to use them every time the Alarm would sound.
Israel never retaliated neither fired back but from Baghdad the fire of missiles continued every night, aiming at Israeli cities.
Since then, the Gas Masks are part of the history and present of this country. I saw lot's and lot's of Graffiti that in a way express how a country manages to carry on with their lives no matter what.
