Syria Chemical weapons plant
Russian 1:200,00 Map of the Al Safir chemical weapons plant and storage area as of 1980
Syira Chemical WMD
The CW plant and storage area in the western canyon are visible. The munitions storage area would not be detected until 1987. Work on the underground SCUD base would not be visible until 1995. Completion of the Tunnel complex and the SCUD support base was detected in the July 2002 Digital Globe image

Russian 1:50,000 Map of the Al Safir Scud base as of 1987
Syria WMD 1994
Syrian 1:50,000 Map as of 1994. The omission of the facility from the Syrian government’s map is a sure indicator that the facility is of military nature
Scud Base

SCUD BAse Syira
Overview of the probable SCUD support base and underground facility. A munitions storage area lies to the right
Syria WMD munition
Close-up of the munitions storage area. Additional storage bunkers have been added between 1987 and 1995
Syria missile site

SA-2 SAM Syria close up
Close-up of the SA-2 SAM site with Guideline missiles on launchers, Fan Song Radar, and Control Vans. Cable are visible running from the command van to the launchers
Chemical Weapons plant - Syria
Overview of the Al Safir chemical weapons plant. Expansion took place between 1987 and 1995
Nervew Agent Plant Syria
This high-voltage sub-station is an indicator of the presence of activity requiring a large volume of electricity. A normal warehouse complex would not require this much energy
Nerve Agent Plant- Syria
These forced-air cooling towers also indicate the presence of an industrial process requiring the disposal of waste heat. Chemical processes for nerve agents produce highly unstable intermediates that react explosively with water. Steam-heating and water cooling must be replaced with special heat-exchange fluids and heating oils that require the use of cooling towers rather than steam vents
Syria WMD
The co-location of munitions storage igloos within the security perimeter of the processing facility is an additional indicator of the Chemical weapons nature of this plant
Syria WMD Storage
The lower storage igloos were added sometime between 1995 and 2002
Syria- Underground WMD
The munitions storage area on the right was built sometime between 1980 and 1987. The buildings on the left are probably associated with SCUD missiles deployed underground and were built after 1995.
Syria Storage of WMD
These storage igloos are located at a separate facility, which was built between 1980 and 1987
Underground WMD- Syria
Between 1995 and 2002 an Underground Facility (UGF) was built as well as above-ground support facilities, possibly to house SCUD-D missiles Syria reportedly acquired in 19XX.

These buildings were built after 1995 and are probably associated with SCUD missiles housed underground. The large building measures 30 x 130 meters
Iraq WMD in syria in Tunnel
A probable command and control facility, located near the tunnel entrances to an underground facility where the Weapons of Mass Destruction are hidden.
Syria WMD Underground tunnel- Iraq WMD
The Tunnel entrances are protected by the box canyon walls, from direct attack from precision-guided munitions. Each of the three tunnel portals is more than wide enough to accommodate the Soviet-build MAZ-543 transporter for the SCUD missile
