Jane's: Syria, Iran & nerve gas against Israel

Iranian military launches missile salvo during
maneuvers earlier this year.

From Janes Magazine via The Jerusalem Post:
"Proof of cooperation between Iran and Syria in the development and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction was brought to light Monday in a Jane's Magazine report that dozens of Iranian engineers and 15 Syrian officers were killed in a July 23 accident in Syria.

According to the report, cited by Channel 10, the joint Syrian-Iranian team was attempting to mount a chemical warhead on a Scud missile when the explosion occurred, spreading lethal chemical agents, including sarin nerve gas and VX gas.

The factory was created specifically for the purposes of altering ballistic missiles to carry chemical payloads, the magazine report claimed.
Meawhile, Israeli President Shimon Peres opines:
"I estimate that the tension between Syria and Israel has gone down, we are ready for direct peace negotiations with Syria,"
