Smoking was snuffed out at public events and outdoor sites, including the Western Wall, under an expanded anti-smoking measure passed by Israel's Knesset.
The legislation passed Wednesday, which will take effect next month, also includes a ban on smoking at bus stops and outdoor concert venues. Smokers also will not be able to light up within 10 yards of a medical clinic and a hospital entrance.
Smoking at stadiums will be allowed to continue.
