Israel Remains Calm as it Girds Itself for War

JERUSALEM, Israel — Syria admitted for the first time recently it has chemical weapons and may use them against outside forces.

Fears that those weapons could fall into terrorist hands or that jihadists could infiltrate Israel’s border with Syria has the Jewish state on high alert.

Israeli authorities are quietly stepping up distribution of gas masks at malls and other public places. By the end of the year, the army estimates another half million gas masks will be distributed — an average of more than 80,000 a month.

But Israelis say they’re not panicking about chemical weapons. They’re just doing what they’re told and getting prepared.

“Yes, I’m concerned but I don’t think the masks will help us. Just God will help us, I think,” one woman at the gas mask distribution center told CBN News.
