Officials in Tel Aviv closed down an office set up to deal with possible Iraqi attacks on the coastal city. The municipality cited budgetary constraints in making the move, the daily Ha’aretz reported. The move, in a city that was targeted by Iraqi Scud missile attacks in the 1991 Persian Gulf War, reflects the general sentiment in Israel that an Iraqi attack at this stage of the war is unlikely.
