Review of 24 Iraqi Ammunition Supply Points

Iraq’s Chemical Warfare Program - Annex I

 

Assessment of 24 Ammunition Sites Identified Within the Predetermined “Red Line”

ISG inspected Ammunition Supply Points (ASPs) and Captured Enemy Ammunition Points (CEAs) to determine whether caches of CW (chemical weapons) had been destroyed or were in storage. Iraq stockpiled or stored munitions at more than 10,000 sites. ISG chose to make use of the limited time available for inspection, focusing efforts on storage sites with the most potential for containing CW. In 2003, ISG formulated a methodology, beginning with sites near the so-called “Red Line” around Baghdad. (For information about the Red Line and its use in the defense of Baghdad, see Annex G). Of the 104 ASPs within the Red Line around Baghdad, ISG used indicators of CW—such as possible decontamination vehicles—to narrow the search to 24 sites. The results of that search—a single visit to each site that visually reviewed a majority of the munitions on-site—were no caches of CW munitions and no single rounds of CW munitions. Although only a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of tons of Iraqi munitions were inspected, ISG has high confidence that there are no CW present in the Iraqi inventory.

Location of 26 RG ASPs near units capable of firing 155mm CW artillery shell or 122mm CW rockets and a suspect decontamination vehicle. The “red line” is shown for reference purposes.
