SUBJECT: IIR 6 834 0421 91/IRAQI CHEMICAL WARFARE
CAPABILITIES. DESERT STORM. (U).

WARNING: (U) THIS IS AN INFORMATION REPORT, NOT FINALLY
EVALUATED INTELLIGENCE.

DOI: (U) 870000-910100.

REQS: (U) [  (b)(2)  ]

SOURCE:        [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]

SUMMARY: THIS REPORT FORWARDS INFORMATION ON
IRAQI CHEMICAL AGENT PRODUCTION PLANTS, STORAGE DEPOTS,
SCUD MISSILES, THE IRAQI CHEMICAL WARFARE SCHOOL,[      (b)(1) sec 
1.3(a)(4)    ]

TEXT: 1. THE FOLLOWING EXCERPTS ARE FROM [  (b)(1)  sec  1.3(a)(4) 
 ]  
2.    [  (b)(1)  sec  1.3(a)(4)  ].

A. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] 

B. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] 


C. [  (b)(1)  sec  1.3(a)(4)  ] 


D. [  (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]    ALSO BELIEVED THAT THE IRAQIS 
HAVE CHEMICAL MINES AND CHEMICAL ARTILLERY PROJECTILES ABOVE 
120MM. HE DOUBTS THEY HAVE CHEMICAL MORTAR AMMUNITION. [      
(b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]

E.   IF THE IRAQIS HAVE A CHEMICAL WARHEAD FOR THE
SCUD,      [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]   OPINED THAT IT WOULD 
PROBABLY CONTAIN SARIN, DUE TO VISCOSITY AND WARHEAD FLIGHT 
STABILIZATION PROBLEMS. A SECOND CHOICE WOULD BE YPERIT, BUT THE
EFFECTS WITH THIS WOULD NOT BE AS GREAT.

F.  [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]  WARNED THAT IF A SCUD WITH A 
CHEMICAL WARHEAD WERE INTERCEPTED BY A PATRIOT MISSLE OVER A
POPULATED AREA, THE CASUALTY EFFECT COULD BE AT LEAST
DOUBLE THAT OF A GROUND BURST. THE AGENT WOULD BE SPREAD
OVER A LARGER AREA. HOWEVER, AN AIRBURST FROM A SCUD WITH
A TABUN WARHEAD WOULD BE INEFFECTIVE BECAUSE IT WOULD
DISSIPATE TOO QUICKLY.

G.  [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]


H.  [  (b)(1)  sec  1.3(a)(3)  ] OFFENSIVE CHEMICAL USE WAS NOT 
TAUGHT. [  (b)(1)  sec  1.3(a)(5)  ].

I.  [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]


3.  [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]


A.  [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]


B. PRODUCTION FACILITIES FOR VX, SOMAN, AND SARIN
ARE IN ALQUEIM (IN SOUTHERN IRAQ). [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]   
PRODUCTION FACILITIES FOR BIOLOGICAL
AGENTS ARE IN SANDARIA, WHICH IS ABOUT 50 KILOMETERS SOUTH
OF BAGHDAD. (NFI)
C.        [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]   IRAQ DID NOT/NOT HAVE 
ROCKETS/MISSILES WITH CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL WARHEADS.

D. [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]


4. [  (b)(1)  sec  1.3(a)(4)  ] 




A.  [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]
 NO CHEMICALS WERE STORED AT THE TRAINING AREA.

B. A LARGE MUNITIONS FACTORY, WHICH MIGHT BE
CHEMICAL CAPABLE, IS ABOUT 5 KM TO THE WEST OF THE
TRAINING AREA. 
[  (b)(1)  sec  1.3(a)(4)  ].

C. [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]






B. CHEMICAL STORAGE AREAS:
-SAMARRA (ALMOST CERTAIN).
-AL QAIM IN VICINITY OF RUTBA, NW IRAQ (HINTS OF
STORAGE HERE).
-BETWEEN KERBELA AND NEDJEF IN A RESTRICTED AREA
(REPORT ASSUMES CHEMICAL WEAPONS STORED HERE).
-KARASCHUK (PHONETIC) IN THE MOUNTAINS WEST OF KIRKUK
(HINTS OF CHEMICAL STORAGE).
-IN SALMAN PAK IS A PROBABLE BIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL
RESEARCH CENTER.
-FAMARA HAS A CHEMICAL WEAPONS DEPOT.

C. CHEMICAL PRODUCTION FACILITIES:
-MAIN ONE AT SAMARRA.
-AT ISKANDERIA, EXPLOSIVE PROJECTILES ARE PRODUCED.
ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS, PROJECTILES WERE SEEN THERE WITH
YELLOW MARKING RINGS.

D. [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]


E. SOME IRAQI AIRCRAFT BUNKERS [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ] 
CHEMICAL WEAPONS WERE PROBABLY STORED INSIDE AS WELL.

F.  [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]


G.  TYPES OF CHEMICALS:
-MUSTARD, SARIN, TABUN.
-VX IN DEVELOPMENT.

6.  [      (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)    ]

A.  A POSSIBLE CHEMICAL WEAPONS PRODUCTION SITE
WAS LOCATED SW OF FAMARA (FROM BAGHDAD IN THE DIRECTION OF
AL FALLUJA).
