Report says Iran in possession of chemical warheads

According to a report in the Kuwaiti daily Al-Siyassa, Iran's Islami Revolutionary Guard Corps has equipped missiles with chemical warheads.

The report, which cited a Sunni Ahwazi organization that is opposed to the Iranian regime, says that Russian SS-4 missiles have been equipped with the warheads. The warhead-equipped missiles, which are aimed at the Gulf countries and other Arab countries, are capable of delivering mustard gas, sarin and cyanide.

The range of the Russian SS-4 missiles is approximately 1,242 miles.

Al-Siyassa' report also noted that the Islami Revolutionary Guard corps has begun to step up its research into biological weapons and that Iran currently has a plan to occupy Jordan via Iraq.

Iran, the Sunni Ahwazi organization says, is acting to uproot millions of western Ahwaz Arab residents to allow the nation to secure its border with Iraq, which would allow it to defend its oil and gas fields in the region.

Iran is not known to be in possession of weapons of mass destruction and has signed treaties repudiating possession of them, including the Biological Weapons Convention, the Chemical Weapons Convention and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Additionally, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic Ali Khameni issued a public and categorical religious decree against the development, production, stockpiling and use of nuclear weapons.
