Mosul is the reported location of the Jaber bin Hayan General Establishment, producing UF6 for the production of Uranium 235 for nuclear weapons. It is also the location of the Al Kindi General Establishment, which according to some reports has engaged in production of UCl4 for the production of Uranium 235 for nuclear weapons.
Al Jesira Factory was a Uranium feed stock production facility. Iraq built facilities to produce uranium oxide and uranium tetrachloride feedstocks. The facility is located 385 km NW of Baghdad near Mosul [which may or may not be near the region of Al Jazirah 35�10'N 42�00'E, which seems a bit distant to be "near Mosul"]. The undeclared uranium conversion plant in Jesira, capable of producing UO2 from yellowcake and UCl4 from UO2 should have been declared and, consequently, should have been subject to IAEA safeguards. Iraq conducted extensive deception to hide the true nature of the chemical plant.
The facility was planned to be the site of future production facility for uranium hexafluoride. Products included: uranium dioxide, uranium tetrachloride, and uranium hexaflouride. Facility 212 processes U2O8 and U3O8 into UO2. The raw U2O8 and U3O8 is a by-product of al-Akarhat fertilizer plant, not itself part of the Iraqi nuclear program. Facility 244, which is adjacent to 212, processed the UO2 from facility 212 into uranium tetrachloride (UCl4).
The facility was attacked during the Gulf War. The critical areas of the 212 Facility were not damaged during the Gulf War, while Facility 244 suffered no more than 20% aggregate damage. [GulfLINK]
