Israel has been overrun by rats. The digging of tunnels for the train expansion project across Israel has pushed a vast army of rats from underground into neighborhoods and homes. People talk like the digging actually produced the rats, but the rats have always been there. Now you see them in the streets. Sometimes a rat will dart across the living room because a patio door is left open to bring in fresh air. People are freaked out and the maintenance departments for the cities are running around fumigating people’s homes, inside and out.
