Syria Establishing Nuclear Weapons Infrastructure
(Source: Ma'ariv)
In a report submitted to the US Congress on the Acquisition of Technology Relating to Weapons of Mass Destruction and Advanced Conventional Munitions, the CIA determined that Syria is establishing an infrastructure to develop nuclear weapons. The report also claims that Syria is developing chemical and biological weapons. It already holds a stockpile of the nerve agent Sarin, but is trying to develop more toxic and potent nerve agents. Syria is also improving its missile range and is continuing to receive help from abroad, primarily from North Korea.
