Download PDF for this date

A chemical warfare course that envisages use of chemical, biological, and radioactive measures against Israel is now in progress at Ar-Rashid camp, Baghdad, Iraq, for chemical warfare officers of all Arab armies in the unified Arab command, it was learned today. The special course commenced June 11 and will continue for ten days.

“In implementation of the resolutions of the conference of Arab directors of military training sponsored by the Arab armies unified command in Cairo last month, a course for the chemical branches in Arab armies has opened at the chemical warfare school in Ar-Rashid camp,” the Iraqi news agency reported. “The holding of this course indicates the extent of cooperation between the fraternal Arab armies in various fields to attain their common goals and aspirations, foremost of which is the liberation of the usurped land in Palestine from the Zionist usurpers and the liberation of all Arab lands from imperialism.”
