Al Mamoun Factory
3301'10"N 4413'10"E

It is reported that the Federal Intelligence Service (BND -- the German foreign intelligence service] has detected a missile facility consisting of several factory buildings, located in an inaccessible area 40 km southwest of Baghdad, apparently near Mulla Fayyad [3303'58"N 4414'03"E]. At the partly subterranean "Al Mamoun Factory" some 250 engineers are reportedly working on producing the short-range missile of the ABABIL-100 type. Although this missile has a range of only 150 km, the project demonstrates the Iraqi determination and personnel for developing missiles.
