Between 18 January and 28 February 1991, Iraq fired 39 Scud missiles at Israeli cities in 19 separate attacks. They caused extensive property damage but fewer casualties than anticipated. Statistical evidence of serious psychiatric reactions to the war experience both immediately and after a delay of several months is sought, based on official Ministry of Health morbidity records for psychiatric facilities over the thee‐year period, 1990‐1992. Psychiatric admissions data produced no statistical support for the thesis that the Gulf War and missile attacks caused extensive long‐term stress.
