The Palestinian Authority has demanded Israel to supply Palestinians living in the West Bank gas masks in the event of a spillover of the Syrian civil war, AFP reported on Wednesday.

"If there is any war in the region, the responsibility [for ensuring Palestinians civilians are prepared] falls upon Israel, because it is the occupying authority," PA security services spokesman Adnan al-Dumayri told AFP."Israel must provide to all citizens living under its occupation the necessary security equipment, be that gas masks or other items, especially if Israel gets into a war we have no connection with," he added.

In the past week, Israel has been distributing gas masks to its citizens ahead of a possible US strike on Syria that might result in retaliation of the Assad regime against Israel.
