NBC Weapons: December 10, 2003


Amid some political controversy, Israel is spending $112 million to build a command bunker outside Jerusalem. The complex consists of tunnels dug deep into the Judean hills and is designed to withstand nuclear, chemical and biological attack. Construction was kept secret until recently, when a TV station obtained video of the work on the tunnels.

For the same reason, Israel is equipping it's new submarines with cruise missiles carrying nuclear warheads.
