Libyan Missiles From North Korea Aimed at NATO Bases, Israel

Wednesday, 29 November 2000 12:00 AM

The missiles, which can carry chemical and biological warheads, were purchased from an arms dealer living in Marbella for $497.5 million, said Mossad Director Efrayim Halevi in a warning sent to NATO intelligence officials. He told NATO the presence of the missiles in Libya constituted "a major threat to the region.”

Mossad agents traced the deal through banks in Madrid and Switzerland, and Israeli air force planes followed a transport plane in the final stage of its journey from North Korea to Libya, where it unloaded 36 No Dong missiles along with 11 North Korean missile technicians.

Experts say that the acquisition of the missile has made Libya one of the best armed nations in the Mediterranean area. They add that Libya is known to have both chemical and biological weapons stored in secret underground depots.

Mossad sources say that the arms merchant in Marbella is now negotiating another large shipment of No Dong missiles, leading some to fear that Israel might launch a preemptive strike against the Libyan missile sites, thus adding to the current instability in the region.
