Iran runs Syria's chemical weapons plants

(Zaman Al Wasl)- As Syrian regime renews chemical attacks on the besieged eastern district of Damascus, sources assured to Zaman al-Wasl that most of domestic chemical weapons and missiles used in the attack were manfactured by Iran.

Damascus has been repeatedly accused of using chemical weapons, with the United Nations among those blaming regime forces for an April 2017 sarin gas attack on the opposition-held village of Khan Sheikhoun which left scores dead.

Although the U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday said Russia bore responsibility for recent chemical attacks on Eastern Ghouta, sources said Iran had been involved in the attack.
More than 20 civilians, most of them children, were victims of a chlorine gas attack on Eastern Ghouta suburbs no Monday.

Tillerson's comments came as diplomats from 29 countries met in Paris to push for sanctions and criminal charges against the perpetrators of chemical attacks in Syria.

Sources reveal that Iranian experts have manufactured new missiles with large destruction power and a cheap cost.

Their method based on the acquisition of missile engines imported from China, Russia, North Korea and Ukraine or those manufactured domestically at the army-run Scientific Research Center and in the Sfira factory in northern Aleppo province .

Missiles Components 

- The 107-mm Katyusha rocket engine (Russian-Korean-China).

-The engine of the rocket BM-14 caliber 140 mm Russian-made.

- Grad rocket engine 122 mm (Russian - Korean - China).

-Rocket engine 220 mm homemade.

- Rocket engine 302 mm homemade.


 Manufacturing Steps

1 - Obtain the part that contains the rocket engine only from the missile types mentioned above (by separating the head mass from the engine).

2- Manufacture of an explosive warhead with a much larger mass than that carried by the basic missile (this container can carry explosives or a container to carry other chemicals).

3- As a natural result of increasing the weight of the explosive head mass several times, the distance of the new missile will be much shorter than the distance of the original missile from which the rocket engine was taken.

4 - Manufacturing suitable shock absorber.

5 - Manufacturing tail suitable for maintaining the balance and rotation during the rocket path in the air.

Centers Under Iran's Control

 - Defense Laboratories in Sfira which were completely destroyed in 2016 due to explosions of unknown cause, which led to the destruction completely, Which led to the transfer of the place of manufacturing into the activities of the plant.

- The Damascus-based 794 factory in the Center for Scientific Studies and Research. The factory was formerly owned by the Defense Industries Corporation. It was then transferred to the Center for Scientific Studies and Research. The most important centers for the manufacture of heavy weapons in Syria, and most of its employees are Syrians with a few counting of Iranian experts.

The Institute "2000 Mechanic" in Barza, the northern suburb of Damascus.

Iran's warpower has reached 82,000 fighters, including 60,000 Syrians, 9,000 members of Hezbollah, 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guard members and "10,000 members of violent Shia militias recruited from across the Middle East, including Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

There have been at least 130 separate chemical weapons attacks in Syria since 2012, according to French estimates, with Daesh (ISIS) also accused of using mustard gas in Syria and Iraq.
