Israeli intelligence says Saddam has lots of weapons of mass destruction, as well as nuclear weapons. According to them, during the year before the U.S. invaded Iraq, Saddam transferred all of his weapons to Syria, including equipment, material and even scientists.
His plan was to quickly reassemble all his weapons once the UN inspectors went home. Israel says weapons were also hidden in the desert in western Iraq, as well as in the homes of Sunni Iraqis.
According to U.S. military intelligence, Palestinian terrorists have been entering Iraq from Syria. U.S. soldiers have encountered members of Hamas over the last few weeks during raids on towns in the Sunni area. These terrorists know how to assembly explosive belts for suicide bombers, and may try to get a suicide bombing program started among young Iraqis.
