Annual Water Fight Makes a Splash in Tel Aviv

Dozens of water-gun toting youths get drenched in water war, despite event's cancellation

Doznes of Israelis frolicked in Tel Aviv's annual water fight on Friday, splashing each other with a veritable bucket-list of fluid-shooting contraptions, from the traditional water guns to more elaborate apparatuses.

Starting in 2004, Water War Tel Aviv has been religiously observed on the first Friday of July ever since, at times drawing thousands of participants. This year the event was sadly canceled due to the exorbitant security costs.

However, revelers spontaneously showed up at Habima Square and completely and utterly soaked each other
