The Israeli arsenal reportedly contains over 100 French-designed Jericho 1 SSMs (500-750 km/500 kg). The Jericho was test-fired in 1968 and is reportedly deployed in the Negev and near the Syrian border in the Golan Heights on mobile launchers. According to an assessment by the Defense Intelligence Agency made public in November 1989, Israel has chemical and nuclear, as well as HE warheads for its Jericho 1 missiles.
