Before the Great War, Arab-Israeli tensions continued to boil into conflict. However, the motive of the terrorist group who committed the act is unknown, and it is unknown whether the bombing was part of these tensions.
At the end of 2053 in December, an unknown terrorist group detonated a nuclear bomb in the city.
The city was entirely destroyed, and the surrounding region was heavily irradiated. The disaster worsened the already tense fear of nuclear war throughout the world.
The nuclear bombing of Tel Aviv is mentioned only in the Fallout Bible.
