SUMMARY:          IRAQI ARMY USES SEVERAL TYPES OF FOREIGN LAND 
MINES IN LARGE VOLUME. IZ HAS MODIFIED A SOVIET SURFACE-TO-SURFACE 
MISSILE WHICH IS MORE POWERFUL AND HAS A LONGER RANGE THAN A SCUD. 
LOCATIONS OF SEVERAL CHEMICAL MUNITION FACTORIES IN IZ.

TEXT: 1. (U) MINES.
A. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]
B. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]
2. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]
3. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]
4.          MISSILES -- SCUDS ON MOBILE LAUNCHERS WERE FIRED
SEVERAL TIMES FROM BEHIND THE 31 DIV AND 48 DIV. ALMOST 
IMMEDIATELY
FOLLOWING SCUD LAUNCHES, THE AREA WHERE THE LAUNCH OCCURRED WAS
SHOWERED BY BOMBS. REMAINING SCUDS ARE MOST LIKELY IN AL BASRAH
//GEOCOORD:3030N/04747E//, IZ. THE LAST TWO MISSILES FIRED AT 
ISRAEL WERE THE AL HIJARA AND SAJIL, WHICH ARE UNIDENTIFIED SOVIET 
MISSILES MODIFIED BY IZ (FIELD COMMENT-- SOURCE SAID THE AL HIJARA 
AND SAJIL ARE NOT MODIFIED SCUD MISSILES BUT DID NOT KNOW THE 
NOMENCLATURE). THE AL HIJARA AND SAJIL MISSILES ARE MORE POWERFUL 
THAN THE SCUD, HAVE A LONGER RANGE (NFI), AND ARE DEFINITELY 
CAPABLE OF CARRYING CHEMICAL WARHEADS. THESE TWO MISSILES MAY HAVE 
BEEN LAUNCHED FROM BAGHDAD. THIS INFORMATION WAS ANNOUNCED ON 
LONDON RADIO 910224. MISSILE FACTORIES, WHICH HAVE BEEN HIT BY 
COALITION BOMBING, HAD BEEN WORKING 24 HOURS A DAY SINCE THE 
IRAN-IRAQ WAR.
5. (U) CHEMICAL MUNITIONS.
A.          TYPES -- IZ ARMY USES THREE TYPES OF CHEMICAL AGENTS 
IN
WAR. THEY ARE MUSTARD, A NERVE AGENT THAT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO
BREATHE, AND A THIRD THAT MAKES VICTIM DIZZY. FACTORIES FOR 
CHEMICAL AND POSSIBLY NUCLEAR MUNITIONS ARE AL-QADSIA AND 
AL-YARMOUK LOCATED IN SALMAN PAK //GEOCOORD: 3306N04435E//, IZ; 
HATIN LOCATED IN TAJI //GEOCOORD: 3220N04558R//, IZ; SAED LOCATED 
IN BAGHDAD, AND AL-ASKANDRIA LOCATED IN AL HILLAH //GEOCOORD: 
3229N04425E//, IZ. AKASHAT IS A BIOLOGICAL WARFARE FACTORY THAT 
WAS BOMBED BY COALITION AIR FORCES.
B.          USE -- CHEMICAL WEAPONS WERE USED TO PROTECT AL BASRAH
DURING IR-IZ WAR, AND ALSO AGAINST THE KURDS IN NORTHERN IZ. TWO
HOURS FOLLOWING ATTACK, SOURCE SAW DEAD ANIMALS WHOSE EYES HAD 
FALLEN OUT AND ABDOMENS HAD EXPANDED GREATLY. IZ HAS HUGE STORES 
OF
WEAPONS, CHEMICAL AND OTHERS, UNDERGROUND AND WILL BE CAPABLE OF
BATTLE IN SIX MONTHS.
C.          FOREIGN ASSISTANCE -- SOVIET SPECIALISTS WORKED IN THE
ABOVE-MENTIONED FACTORIES UNTIL A SOVIET REPRESENTATIVE,
((PRIMAKOV)), CAME TO BAGHDAD WITH A PEACE PROPOSAL AND WAS SENT
AWAY.
