Al-Samoud 2

The Al-Samoud (الصمود) missile is essentially a scaled-down Scud.

On February 13, 2003, a UN panel reported that Iraq's Al-Samoud 2 missiles, disclosed by Iraq to weapons inspectors in December, have a range of 180 km, splitting opinion over whether they breach UNSCR 1441. The limit allowed by the UN is 150 km.

Iraq has agreed to destroy the Al-Samoud 2 long range missiles. As of March 2, 10 have been destroyed.
