Study Says Iraq
Nuclear-Capable
In 10 Years

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A new
study claims Iraq will com-
plete construction of an
enriched uranium plant,
capable of producing nuclear
weapons, within five to 10
years, according to study
released by the Center for
Strategic Studies.
The study says the Iraqis
are working on developing
missiles with a range of
1,200 miles and trying to
construct warheads that can
carry biological and
chemical weapons.
The researcher, Daniel
Leshem, said Iraq is carry-
ing out missile-launching
experiments in Mauritania,
an Islamic state in West
Africa. Iraq apparently fears
Israel will attempt to
destroy its missile launchers
and has increased the
number of launchers under
construction.
A report in Sunday's New
York Times confirmed this
information through British,
American and Israeli intel-
ligence sources, who also
said Iraq would need at least
two years to begin warhead
production.
Although Iraq still faces
technical problems for the
building of a serious nuclear
arsenal, experts quoted by
the Times said Iraq had
managed to acquire some of
the technical expertise and
materials necessary to begin
production.
Donald Kerr, an analyst
with the International In-
stitute for Strategic Studies
in London, said: "My own
feeling is that it will be five
to seven years, provided
someone doesn't destroy
Iraq's industrial capacity
before then.

Renew Contract

Jerusalem (JPFS) — The
Israel Space Agency has
renewed for four years a con-
tract with the U.S. National
Aeronautics and Space Ad-
ministration for operating a
laser station in Bar Giora,

The station, part of a
worldwide network, tracks
space satellites and reports
on movement of the con-
tinents.
The Science and
Technology Ministry, with
which the ISA is affiliated,
called the agreement "a very
prestigious and important
achievement in the field of
geophysical research."
