List of Israeli WMD facilities, including Nuclear Weapons and Biological and Chemical Weapons manufacturing sites.
Fourteen Nuclear Weapons manufacturing sites, plus their Latitude and Longitude are listed. Also included are Israel's sites for Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.
And Command and Control sites for the IDF.
Israel's main missile assembly facility is located near the town of Be'er Yaakov. the Jericho and Arrow missiles and the Shavit launch vehicle are assembled in a single long building. The Jericho and derivative Shavit are assembled in one area, the Arrow in another.
Negev Nuclear Research Center Kirya le-Mechkar Garinii (KAMAG)
The Dimona heavy water reactor and an installation for processing irradiated fuel are used to produce weapons-grade nuclear material. Approximately 2,700 scientists, technicians, administrative staff, and other workers are employed at Dimona. Since the facility was constructed in the late 1950's the surrounding land has been altered to sustain groves of palms and gardens positioned to obscure the facility from the road and air.
Eilabun [Ilabun] is reportedly a tactical nuclear weapons storage facility in eastern Galilee. One of two Israeli nuclear weapons storage facilities, it is located near the town of the same name immediately west of the Sea of Gallilee off Route 65. It is speculated that that Tirosh is the strategic weapons storage site, while Eilabun is the tactical weapons storage site. Eilabun reportedly stores tactical nuclear artillery shells, nuclear landmines and other tactical nuclear weapons.
Haifa - RAFAEL
In addition to ongoing close cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces, RAFAEL Armament Development Authority provides technology tailored to the needs of a long list of customers including some of the world's leading armed forces. The Propulsion and Explosive Systems Directorate provides all propulsion, pyrotechnics and warhead requirements for RAFAEL armament systems purchased by Israeli and overseas Customers. Comprehensive facilities are available in RAFAEL to cover all aspects of research, design, development, manufacturing and testing of solid-propellant rocket motors with a wide size range.
Haifa - Kishon Port
Israel's primary chemical and biological warfare facility is at Nes Ziyyona [Noss Ziona], near Tel Aviv. The Israeli Institute for Bio-Technology is believed to be the home of both offensive and defensive research.
The Israeli Air Force reportedly has three squadrons [150, 199 and 248 squadrons] equipped with Jericho nuclear-tipped missiles at the Sedot Mikha [Sdot Micha] base, 45 km south of Tel-Aviv. The Sedot Mikha Jericho IRBM base is located near the town of Zekharyah, east of Ashkelon and south east of Tel Nof AB, and south of the Sorek River between Kiriat-Gat and Beit-Shemesh.
A missile test range and space launch facility is located near the Palmachim [Palmikim] Air Force Base on the coast of Israel south of Tel Aviv and north north-east of Ashdod. The facility is also sometimes referred to as Yavne [31.820N 34.713E], which is the urban area near the Soreq nuclear research center. The area is largely covered by sand dunes. Palmachim Air Force Base was built by the IDF/AF in the 1970s, originally as a test site for missiles conducted by 151 Squadron. Also used as a helicopter base, the single runway is 2,000 meters long
Palmahim 31°55'59"N 34°42'26"E
Bene Ayish 31°47'00"N 34°45'00"E
Nahal Sorek 3 31°47'00"N 34°49'00"E
Bet Hilqiyya 31°47'00"N 34°49'00"E
The Soreq Nuclear Research Center is located near Yavne, west of Beersheb, and shares a security zone with the Palmichim Air Base. The functional equivalent of the US Livermore or Los Alamos national weapons laboratories, it is responsible for nuclear weapons research, design and fabrication.
Under an agreement with the United States the Soreq IRR-1 5-MW swimming pool-type research reactor was constructed at Nahal Soreq in 1955. This reactor was placed under US and subsequently International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspection. The Center was formally established in 1958, and currently has a total of over 200 employees. Activities at Soreq include research and development of nuclear weapons.
The Israeli underground national military command center, "the Bor," is located beneath the Defense Ministry complex -- the Kirya, Israel's equivalent of the Pentagon -- in the Hakirya district. This facility is within a few hundred feet of the former Prime Minister's office in Tel Aviv.
Tel Nof reportedly is the location of nuclear weapons storage bunkers. This large airbase is located only a few miles from Tirosh, where nuclear weapons for its missions are reportedly stored. Just to the south of the Zachariah Jericho 2 training pad are several bunkers for contain nuclear gravity bombs for attack aircraft at the Tel Nof air base a few kilometers to the northwest.
Tirosh, located off Route 38, is reportedly one of two Israeli nuclear weapons storage facilities. It is speculated that that Tirosh is the strategic weapons storage site, while Eilabun is the tactical weapons storage site. It is reported that the facility consists of a network of roads linking approximately 70 bunkers, each spaced about 25 yards apart. Other reports suggest that nuclear weapons are stored at the five large bunkers at this site. The facility is surrounded by a perimeter road and security fences. The facility is close to both the Tel Nof Air Base and the Sedot Mikha missile garrison.
Yodefat is reportedly an installation for assembling and dismantling nuclear weapons. The Haifa area is home to several Rafael facilities responsible for the assembly of Israeli nuclear weapons since the first two weapons were fabricated in late 1966. Currently weapons are assembled at a modern and more remote facility at Yodefat east of Haifa. It is reported that classified satellite imagery of the facility shows a highly secure underground facility with two large elevators. According to Mordechai Vanunu, convoys carry plutonium from Dimona to Yodefat.
U/I Facility Near Ramla
U/I Test Site
Israel has almost certainly conducted one or more zero-yield or sub-critical tests of the non-nuclear explosive components for an implosion design plutonium bomb.
In June 1998, a Member of the Knesset accused the government of an underground test near Eilat on 28 May 1998. A seismic event in the region was detected by Egyptian scientists, but subsequently the event was explained by the Israelis as the result of a car-bomb test.
