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

DOI:      (U) 910306.
REQS:     (U) T-8C2-2650-01-90.
SOURCE: [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ][   (b)(7)(D)   ]
SUMMARY:          CHEMICAL AGENTS BEING USED BY THE IRAQI'S, HOW
THESE ARE DELIVERED, AND THE SYMPTOMS OF THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN 
EXPOSED TO MUSTARD GAS. CHEMICAL PLANT LOCATIONS.
TEXT:  1.            TYPES OF CHEMICALS - THE IRAQ ARMY USES FOUR
DIFFERENT KINDS OF CHEMICAL AGENTS; THE FIRST IS MUSTARD GAS, THE
SECOND IS A NERVE AGENT, THE THIRD IS CS, AND THE FOURTH IS 
MOZDAWAG
- A BIOCHEMICAL AGENT.
2.            METHODS OF EMPLOYMENT - THE CHEMICALS ARE EMPLOYED 
IN
ONE OF TWO WAYS; THE FIRST IS BY AN UNK ROCKET WHICH HAS A RANGE 
OF
50 KM, AND THE SECOND IS BY AIR DROPPED BOMBS.  WHEN THE ROCKET
EMPLOYS A CHEMICAL WARHEAD, TWO ARROWS ARE PAINTED ON THE WARHEAD, 
AS OPPOSED TO NO MARKINGS FOR CONVENTIONAL WARHEADS.
3.            PREVIOUS USE - IN JUNE OF 1987 ORDERS WERE GIVEN BY 
AL HASSEN ((MAJEED)) ((SOURCE COMMEMT) - MAJEED IS THE BA'ATH 
PARTY
LEADER IN NORTHERN IRAQ) TO AN UNK UNIT TO USE MUSTARD GAS ON THE
KURDS IN NORTHERN IRAQ.  AFTER THE MUSTARD GAS WAS EMPLOYED IN THE
AREA BY ROCKET, 500 OF THE SURVIVORS WERE PUT INTO A DETENTION 
CENTER FOR THREE DAYS WHILE WAITING TO BE RELOCATED.  THE MAJORITY 
OF THE DETAINEES SHOWED SYMPTOMS FROM CHEMICAL WEAPONS, AND SINCE 
NO MEDICAL ASSISTANCE WAS GIVEN, 15 OF THE 500 PEOPLE DIED.  SOME 
OF THE SYMPTOMS OBSERVED WERE; BLOOD FROM THE EARS AND NOSE, 
VOMITING, AND OPEN LESIONS ON ANY SKIN EXPOSED DURING THE ATTACK. 
 ON ONE OCCASION, THE IRAQIS MISJUDGED THE WIND AND KILLED SEVERAL 
OF THEIR OWN MEN.  OTHER THAN USE AGAINST THE KURDS, IRAQ HAS USED 
CHEMICAL WARFARE IN THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR, THE MAJNON ISLANDS WAR, AND 
THE AL FAW WAR. 
4.            CHEMICAL PLANT LOCATIONS - THERE IS A LARGE CHEMICAL
FACTORY PRODUCING THE BIOCHEMICAL AGENT MOZDAWAG 40 KM SOUTH OF
BAGHDAD IN SALMAN BAK, IZ //GEO COORD: 3306N04435E//.  THERE IS
ANOTHER FACTORY BUILT UNDERGROUND APPROXIMATELY 30 KM WEST OF AL
MAWSIL, IZ //GEOCOORD: 362000N0430800E//, AND ABOUT 10 KM NORTH OF
MAHALABIYA (CNA).  ((SOURCE COMMENT) - I TALKED TO A FRIEND ON THE
[   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]AND HE TOLD ME THAT THIS FACTORY HAD 
ESCAPED THE BOMBING RAIDS.
COMMENTS: (U) THE SOURCE WAS OF ABOVE AVERAGE INTELLIGENCE, AND
DUE TO THE FACT THAT[   (b)(7)(D)   ] HAS SEEN MANY UNNECESSARY 
DEATHS, IS VERY WILLING TO COOPERATE IN ANY WAY THAT WILL HELP 
DESTROY IRAQ'S WAR MACHINE.
