Germany's intelligence agency Friday confirmed a report that it had discovered the location of a secret Iraqi missile factory near Baghdad, reported The Associated Press.
About 250 technicians are working on short-range missiles at the Al Mamoun Factory, said a spokeswoman from the German Intelligence agency.
The report in the Bild newspaper said the complex, which has many buildings, is located 25 miles southwest of Baghdad, and gave the precise latitude and longitude, said the AP.
Although the ARABIL-100 missiles have a range of less than 93 miles, the production shows "the Iraqi will and personnel for missile development exists as before," the report said - Albawaba.com
