SUBJECT          CW PRODUCTION

FACILITIES IN IRAQ







INFORMATION REGARDING CW

ACTIVITIES IN IRAQ          INDICATE

THAT SIX IDENTICAL FACILITIES

WERE DELIVERED TO IRAQ

AFTER 1987.

DESIGNED FOR SOME ASPECT

OF CW PRODUCTION          THE FACILITIES WERE INTENDED

TO BE COMBINED TO PRODUCE SOME TYPE OF LARGER FACILITY.

THE FACILITIES ARE CLEARLY SUITABLE FOR THE SYNTHESIS

OF NERVE AGENT.







THESE SIX FACILITIES

MAY BE LOCATED IN HABBANIYAH, SPECIFICALLY AT THE MIDDLE COMPLEX

THERE.          IF THIS IS CORRECT, THEN HABBANIYAH HAS A

LARGER CAPACITY TO PRODUCE CW AGENTS THAN SAMARRA DOES.







IT IS THE MIDDLE FACILITY IN WHICH CHLORINE IS

PRODUCED.
