Iraq's Noncompliance With UN
Security Council Resolution 687
 An Intelligence Assessment
August 1991
We know through          reporting that
chemical weapons have been stored at three
declared siteS---Samarra', Muhammadiyat, and
Khamisiyah---for several years. The latter TWO
SITES were not in Iraq's initial declaration to the UN
but were declared shortly thereafter. By 1988,
SAMARRA' and Muhammadiyat reportedly were two
of Iraq's principal CW storage sites. Chemical
weapons were stored at the KhamiSiyah site as
early as 1985.          three
other storage sites declared by Iraq contained S-
shaped special storage bunkers, all but one of
which was damaged or destroyed by Coalition
AIRSTRIKES. 
Khamisiyah Storage Facility
Iraq declared that chemical munitionS are stored at
the Khamisiyah storage facility, near the city of An
Nasiriyah.         REPORTING indicated in
1986 THAT SEVERAL THOUSAND MUSTARD munitions were
stored at the Khamisiyah site. The Iraqi
coordinates are close to those of a storage facility
near An Nasiriyah that contains ONE S-shaped
bunker. The bunker was extensively damaged by
Coalition attacks.
