Fallujah Update: Insurgent Chemical/Explosives Weapons Laboratory, Multinational Force - Iraq   [open pdf - 484KB]

"On 23 November 2004, Iraqi and coalition forces discovered an insurgent laboratory in Fallujah including chemicals and equipment necessary to produce rudimentary chemical weapons capable of creating poisonous gases and explosives used in improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The site may have served as a testing and research area for construction of improvised chemical devices (ICDs) and/or routine production facility for explosives used in IEDs. Initial translations of the insurgents notes reveal that training and research on chemical weapons was being conducted. The following materials were discovered in the laboratory and can be used to construct an IED or ICD by following simple instructions downloaded via several jihadist internet websites."
