Saddam Hiding Scuds, Launchers under Bridges

(Jerusalem Post) Israel Television Channel 1 reported that Saddam is hiding missile launchers, of Russian manufacture, and Scud missiles on specially constructed trucks which move around the country and hide under bridges, making them invisible to satellite surveillance and coalition warplanes. According to Israeli officials, some of these trucks may have been hidden in western Iraq, and coalition forces have been bombing bridges and trucks in that part of the country intensively for the past few days. Israeli officials say these trucks are fully capable of launching Scud missiles. Israel sees this as a threat and it is for this reason that Israel's threat assessment has not changed. Israel is still on high alert.
