Additional proof of cooperation between Iran and Syria in the development and deployment of weapons of mass destruction was revealed Monday in a Jane’s Magazine report that dozens of Iranian engineers and 15 Syrian officers were killed in a July 23 accident in Syria.
According to the report, the joint Syrian-Iranian team was attempting to mount a chemical warhead on a scud missile when the explosion occurred, spreading lethal chemical agents, including sarin nerve gas and VX gas.
The factory was created for the purpose of adapting ballistic missiles to carry chemical payloads, Jane’s claimed.
Although reports of the accident were circulated at the time, no details were released by the Syrian government, nor was the Iranian connection revealed.
