IRAQI BW FACILITIES
BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS HAVE BEEN STORED AT MILITARY FACILITIES
ACROSS IRAQ. FOR EXAMPLE, BW WARHEADS HAVE BEEN STORED AT THE
AL TAJI MISSILE FACILITY
THE IRAQIS HAVE WEAPONIZED BW AGENTS INTO AT LEAST AERIAL
BOMBS AND MISSILE WARHEADS.
1. AL TAJI MILITARY FACILITY (333223N, 441638E)
THE IRAQIS HAVE BURIED ARTICLES IN VARIOUS
PARTS OF THIS FACILITY. FOR EXAMPLE. THE IRAQIS
BURIED SPECIAL WEAPONS
2. SALMAN PAK BW RESEARCH AND PRODUCTION FACILITY (330415N,
443530E)
THIS WAS IRAQ'S PRIMARY BW FACILITY BEFORE THE WAR.
THE FACILITY WAS EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED DURING THE WAR,
KEY AREAS INCLUDE THE THREE
REMAINING REFRIGERATED BUNKERS AND THE HIGH CONTAINMENT
BUILDING, DESIGNED TO WORK ON HIGHLY INFECTIOUS ORGANISMS. THE
ENGINEERING/RESEARCH AREA
3. K-3 AIRFIELD AT HAQLANIYAY (340435N, 421956E)
THERE ARE FOUR SEPARATELY SECURED REVETTED BUILDINGS
LOCATED TWO KMS FROM K-3 AIRFIELD. WE BELIEVE THESE BUILDINGS
HAVE STORED BW MUNITIONS IN THE PAST. THE BUILDINGS ARE
PHYSICALLY SEPARATED BY SEVERAL KILOMETERS FROM THE LARGER
AMMUNITION STORAGE AREA THAT CONSISTS OF OVER 100 BUNKERS
4. THE FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE VACCINE PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT,
AL DURAH
ABOUT 20 KM FROM THE CITY CENTER.
MAXIMUM CONTAINMENT FACILITY. THE FACILITY HAS BEEN INVOLVED
WITH RESEARCH AND PRODUCTION OF VIRUSES FOR THE BW PROGRAM.
5. THE AL HUKAM PLANT, BABIL GOVERNATE
IS LOCATED ON THE EUPHRATES
RIVER TO THE SOUTHWEST OF BAGHDAD. THE FACILITY HAS BEEN
INVOLVED WITH RESEARCH AND PRODUCTION OF BW AGENTS SUCH AS
BOTULINUM TOXIN.
6. SAMARA STATE ESTABLISHMENT FOR DRUG INDUSTRIES
THIS PLANT, ALSO KNOWN AS SAMARA PHARMACEUTICAL PLANT, IS
THE LARGET SINGLE PHARMACEUTICAL PLANT IN IRAQ AND IS INTACT.
THE PLANT PRODUCES THE MAJOR PROPORTION OF IRAQ'S
PHARMACEUTICALS. IT HAS CONSIDERABLE DUAL-USE
7. AL KINSA COMPANY, ABU GHRAIB (331823N, 441636E)
WE BELIEVE THIS TO BE THE
CLOSTRIDIUM VACCINE PLANT LOCATED IN ABU GHRAIB. THE COALITION
FORCES DESTROYED THIS FACILITY DURING THE WAR. THE PLAN1 WAS
PROBABLY THE SITE OF BOTULINUM TOXIN PRODUCTION.
8. SERA AND VACCINE INSTITUTE, BAGHDAD
IT IS PROBABLY THE ABU GHRAIB SERUM AND VACCINE
PLANT.
9. BAGHDAD UNIVERSITY BIOLOGY DEPARTMENT
THIS FACILITY HAS BEEN INVOLVED WITH BW-RELATED RESEARCH.
