Se dice que el IIBR produjo el veneno que fue utilizado en el fracasado atentado terrorista del Mosad para matar al líder político de HAMAS, Jaled Mashaal en 1997. Se señala también que el Mosad mató en 1978 al líder del Frente Popular para la Liberación de Palestina, Haddad, mediante chocolates especiales con veneno producidos por el IIBR.

Se ha comprobado que el vuelo Al Flight 1862, que se estrelló en Holanda en 1992, transportaba carga con destino al IIBR, que incluyó 190 litros de dimetil metilfosfonato, que podía ser utilizado en la síntesis de gas nervioso sarín. El envío fue desde una planta química de EE.UU. bajo licencia del Departamento de Comercio de EE.UU. El dimetil metilfosfonato está ahora en la Lista 2 de la Convención sobre Armas Químicas.

IIBR ENFRENTA CARGOS POR PRODUCIR ARMAS BIOLÓGICAS

 

12 de mayo 2011. El Instituto Israelí para la Investigación Biológica (IIBR), una organización secreta encargada de desarrollar tratamientos para proteger a los israelíes de armas químicas o biológicas, pero a menudo acusado ​​de desarrollar armas propias, puede saltar al primer plano de noticias debido a una demanda de un antiguo empleado disgustado.

Avisha Klein, quien alguna vez fue una estrella en ascenso en el IIBR en la localidad de Nes Tziona, ha presentado una demanda Shekel de 2,5 millones contra el instituto, su director el Dr. Avigdor Shafferman, y el director de seguridad en el Ministerio de Defensa, según Yossi Merman ante HAARETZ un Website de noticias y analisis en tiempo real de lo que ocurre en Israel y el Este Medio. 

El demandante comenzó a trabajar en el  Instituto Israelí para la Investigación Biológica (IIBR) en 1982 y rápidamente escaló posiciones. Trabajó como co-coordinador del departamento de animales vivos y formó parte de un equipo que desarrolló un ungüento para proteger la piel contra el gas mostaza.

Sus problemas comenzaron en 1998. La demanda alega que Klein fue acosado y abusado emocionalmente por años.

Haaretz informa que en su demanda, Klein señala que solicitó y recibió permiso para prestar servicios como consultor en la obtención de monos para la exportación de una finca privada en el Kibbutz Urim en el Negev. Al final, el proyecto nunca llegó a despegar debido a la oposición organizacional a la experimentación y el abuso en animales.

En ese momento, los superiores de Klein en el instituto, dijeron que él nunca había recibido permiso para formar parte del proyecto y que se había forjado los permisos. Fue entonces cuando un alto funcionario del Departamento de Seguridad del Ministerio de Defensa, Humi Even Tali (actualmente director de la rama de asignaciones especiales) puso en marcha una investigación criminal sobre las actividades de Klein.

 

A raíz de la investigación, Klein fue suspendido y el Dr. Avigdor Shafferman le dio instrucciones para "pasar a un galpón abandonado y destartalado lleno de ratones y ratas que había servido como almacén", según la demanda. Klein pasó tres años de inactividad en el cobertizo, tiempo durante el cual recibió su salario. Después, tomó un corto descanso sabático – aprobado - en los Estados Unidos y luego dos años de vacaciones sin goce de sueldo. A su regreso a Israel en 2003, descubrió para su asombro que el instituto no tenía intención de ponerlo en ninguna posición ... Klein siguió concurriendo a trabajar en el instituto por cinco años más, tiempo durante el cual permaneció completamente inactivo. No obstante, el instituto no se atrevía a despedirlo y siguió pagandole su sueldo.

 

En 2008, una nueva investigación le fue abierta por el agente de seguridad del instituto, Nissan Poran, y los interrogadores del Ministerio de Defensa - esta vez bajo la sospecha de que Klein había filtrado información, que finalmente llegó a Haaretz. Los investigadores confiscaron el ordenador de Klein en casa, que dijo que pertenecía a su mujer. Al día siguiente, Poran emitió un comunicado a todos los empleados del instituto que estaba destinado a denigrar y humillar a Klein. Su etiqueta de identificación de empleado fue confiscada, y se le prohibió acceder a las instalaciones.

 

El Dr. Avigdor Shafferman, director del instituto IIBR ha tenido varias quejas presentadas en su contra, pero las investigaciones siempre lo han exculpado. La controversia más notoria tuvo relación con su manejo de la vacuna contra el ántrax.

 

La demanda de Klein marca la primera vez que tales acusaciones se sostienen públicamente en la corte. No está claro que tan perjudicial será esto para el instituto IIBR. Se reveló que un accidente de avión de carga en 1992 en Amsterdam, llevaba un componente del gas nervioso para el IIBR. El instituto IIBR sigue siendo acusado de desarrollar armas químicas y biológicas.

Revelan producción de armas biológicas del régimen israelí

Nuevas revelaciones sobre la expansión armamentística de Israel. En este caso a través de armas biológicas. Una demanda presentada contra la administración de un instituto de investigación biológica del régimen de Israel ha revelado que podría ser la instalación de armas más secreta que posee el régimen de Tel Aviv.

Según un informe publicado por el hebdomadario egipcio, Al-Ahram, el Instituto Israelí de Investigación Biológica (IIBR, por sus siglas en inglés) es una instalación en la cual el régimen israelí desarrolla sus armas biológicas y químicas. El mes pasado, Avisha Klein, uno de los empleados del mencionado instituto, presentó una demanda contra la administración del IIBR por acoso y abuso emocional, lo que se sumó a los numerosos detalles que han esclarecido la naturaleza del trabajo del instituto.

Según informe, el IIBR ubicado en la zona Rishon Litsion en el sudeste de Tel Aviv, es la instalación militar de máximo secreto en los territorios ocupados, estrictamente protegida por la censura militar y equipada con sistemas de vigilancia y advertencia de última tecnología. Unos 300 científicos y técnicos trabajan en el instituto, cada uno de ellos, especialista en un área de la investigación química o biológica orientada generalmente a la producción de armas químicas o biológicas.

El informe indica que el IIBR produjo el veneno que fue utilizado en el fracasado atentado terrorista del Mosad para matar al líder político de HAMAS, Jaled Mashaal en 1997.

Señala también, citando a un libro del periodista israelí Aharon Klein publicado recientemente, que el Mosad, con un veneno producido por el IIBR, mató en 1978 al líder del Frente Popular para la Liberación de Palestina, Haddad, mediante chocolates especiales que le entregó en Bagdad un funcionario iraquí, agente del Mosad que se había hecho amigo de Haddad, que en aquel entonces residía en Bagdad, la capital iraquí.

Es muy probable que el veneno que los agentes del Mosad inyectaron al dirigente de HAMAS, Mahmud Al-Mabhouh en Dubai en febrero de 2010, procedieran del IIBR que trabaja estrechamente con el Ejército y los servicios de inteligencia israelí, así como con el Mosad y el Shin Bet, (las agencias responsables de la mayoría de los asesinatos y operaciones de exterminio de objetivos árabes y musulmanes), según el informe.

También hay informes de que se ha utilizado a soldados israelíes para probar las vacunas, lo que ha degenerado en daños neurológicos y físicos permanentes que afectan a estos militares.

Israeli Bio-Weapons Institute Sued

IIBR

12 May 2011 . Israel's Institute for Biological Research (IIBR), a top secret organization tasked with developing treatments to protect Israelis from chemical or biological weapons, but often accused of developing weapons of its own, risks exposure due to a lawsuit from a disgruntled former employee.

Avisha Klein, who was once a rising star at the IIBR in Nes Tziona, has filed a 2.5 million Shekel suit against the institute, its director Dr. Avigdor Shafferman, and the director of security at the Defense Ministry, according to Yossi Melman at Haaretz.

The plaintiff began working at the institute in 1982 and rapidly climbed the ranks. He worked as the co-coordinator of the live animal department and was part of a team that developed an ointment to protect skin against mustard gas. His troubles began in 1998. Klein's lawsuit alleges that he was harassed and emotionally abused for years. Haaretz reports:

In his suit, Klein notes that he requested and received permission to serve as a consultant on raising monkeys for export for a private farm on Kibbutz Urim in the Negev. In the end, the project never got off the ground because of organizational opposition to experimenting on and abusing animals. At the time, Klein's superiors at the institute said that he had never received permission to be part of the project and that he had forged the permits. It was then that a senior official of the security branch of the Defense Ministry, Humi Even Tali (currently director of the special assignments branch ) launched a criminal investigation into Klein's activities.

In the wake of the investigation, Klein was suspended and Shafferman instructed him to "move to an abandoned and rickety shed filled with mice and rats which had formerly served as a storeroom," according to the suit. Klein spent three idle years in the shed, during which time he received his salary. Afterward, he took a short, approved sabbatical in the United States and then a two-year vacation without pay. Upon returning to Israel in 2003, he discovered to his astonishment that the institute had no intention of providing him with any position.

...Klein continued to show up for work at the institute for five more years, during which time he remained completely idle. Nonetheless, the institute did not dare to fire him and continued to pay his salary.

In 2008, a new investigation was opened by the institute 's security officer, Nissan Poran, and Defense Ministry interrogators - this time on suspicion that Klein had leaked information, which eventually found its way to Haaretz. The investigators confiscated Klein's home computer, which he said belonged to his wife. The next day, Poran issued a statement to all institute employees that was meant to denigrate and humiliate Klein. His employee identification tag was confiscated, and he was banned from the premises.

Shafferman, the director of the institute has had several complaints filed against him but investigations have consistently cleared his name. The most talked about controversy deals with his handling of the anthrax vaccine.

Klein's lawsuit marks the first time that such claims will be argued publicly in court.  It is unclear how damaging this will be for the institute. It was revealed that a 1992 cargo plane crash in Amsterdam was carrying a component of nerve gas for IIBR. The institute continues to be accused of developing chemical and biological weapons.

Tel Aviv's most guarded secret exposed
 
 
A lawsuit filed against the administration of an Israeli biological research institute has blown open what is arguably the most secret weapons facility Israel has, writes Saleh El-Naami

Drivers will only dart a glance at that mammoth structure nestled in the dunes south of Rishon Litsion southeast of Tel Aviv as they speed on their way. It is forbidden to turn off the Tel Aviv-Rishon Litsion highway onto the side road leading up to that building, which is barricaded by cement walls equipped with state-of-the-art surveillance and warning systems developed by Israel's military industries. 

That fortress-like structure is the Israeli Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) where Israel develops its biological and chemical weapons and prepares for any eventuality of biological or chemical warfare. It is the most top-secret military installation in Israel. So tightly is it guarded by military censorship that the Israeli press has to turn to Western sources for scraps of information made available to them, very intermittently, by special contacts inside the institute. 

Only once has the Israeli press been given leeway to discuss what goes on behind those high security walls. That was last month when Avisha Klein filed a suit against the IIBR administration for harassment and emotional abuse. A long-term employee at the institute, Klein has served in various positions, one of which was as part of a team to develop an ointment to protect the skin from mustard gas. But this is only one of the many details that have come to light in the course of the proceedings, which have shed considerable light on the nature and scope of the institute's work. 

The IIBR is staffed by some 300 scientists and technicians employed in one or more of its many departments, each of which specialises in a specific area of chemical or biological research generally aimed at the production of chemical or biological weaponry. One of these departments, for example, is reported to have developed the poison that was used by the notorious Mossad assassination unit, Kidon, in its botched attempt to eliminate Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal in 1997. Nevertheless, if there remains some question over the accuracy of this information, which was reported in Haaretz, no one disputes that the first time the institute's products were used in an assassination operation was in late 1977 when then prime minister Menachem Begin ordered Mossad to eliminate Wadie Haddad. 

A leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Haddad was accused by Israel of responsibility for several terrorist operations, the last of which was the hijacking of an Israeli passenger plane en route to Entebbe in 1976. According to a recently published book by the Israeli journalist Aharon Klein, Haddad had a great fondness for Belgian chocolates. Mossad obtained some of these special chocolates, coated them with a slow-acting poison, and had them delivered to Haddad, who was then living in Baghdad, by an Iraqi official who was a Mossad agent and who had struck up a friendship with Haddad. Klein relates that the deadly substance was first developed in the IIBR and that its slow-acting and undetectable properties ensured that the agent and the instrument of death would not be discovered. 

And indeed, following a gradual but severe deterioration in his health, Haddad was flown to a hospital in East Germany where he was diagnosed with leukaemia and eventually died on 28 March 1978. It was not until 32 years later that the truth came to light: that the real cause of death was a poison produced by IIBR. 

It is not unlikely that Mossad conducted many assassination operations in this way, so as not to leave its fingerprints. In other words, the seemingly accidental deaths of many individuals that Israel regarded as a threat may have actually been caused by substances produced by IIBR. Most likely, the poison that Mossad agents injected into Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh in Dubai in February 2010 came from IIBR. 

According to information that has recently come out, the institute contains a department specialising in the production of vaccines against biological weapons. One of the chief focuses of research and development, here, was anthrax, which Israel fears the Arabs and resistance organisations will use against it in a confrontation. The institute also has a department for developing remedies to minimise and counter the effects of chemical weaponry. The whole presents a gruesome picture of a curious chemical and biological race, with the institute virtually competing with itself to produce antidotes to weapons that it, itself, is producing, or that it fears others will use against Israel in an eventual confrontation. 

The IIBR works closely and in full coordination with the Israeli army and intelligence, which furnish the institute with their lists of priorities in light of their strategic threat forecasts. For example, information that has come to light during the coverage of Klein's suit reveals that many years ago the Israeli military establishment was concerned that Arab states might use such chemical agents as mustard gas in an potential assault against Israel and, therefore, instructed the institute to develop a chemical substance to minimise the effects of the gas. Not surprisingly, the institute coordinates closely with the Israeli army's medical corps, which receives the antidotes and distributes them to its branches in the military in accordance with demand. 

The institute also works closely with Mossad and Shin Bet, the agencies primarily responsible for most of the assassination and liquidation operations against Arab and Muslim targets. Also, since Mossad and the military intelligence unit "Aman" are responsible for gathering enemy intelligence and presumably monitor nonconventional weapons programmes in Arab countries, they would instruct IIBR to develop the necessary biological or chemical responses to these programmes. 

However, the IIBR has another purpose on top of developing and producing biological and chemical weapons and antidotes. It is also a major hard currency income-generator. The Hebrew Haaretz website reports: "The institute has received a grant of hundreds of millions of dollars to develop an anthrax vaccine." The grant followed an attack in the US by a home-grown terrorist group that developed a concentrated strain of anthrax spores and delivered them to several individual targets in US; the vaccines that IIBR was commissioned to develop were destined for use in the US. 

More importantly, we learn from the website that Israeli soldiers have been used to test the vaccines, causing some permanent physical damage. Reports of the internationally banned use of human guinea pigs raised moral hackles in Israel and sharpened suspicions that the lives of Israeli soldiers had deliberately been put to risk for the sake of financial gain received for promoting the security of another country, namely the US in this case. 

The IIBR has a live animals department, where rabbits, pigs, monkeys and other animals are used in experiments. And perhaps human beings as well, judging by the suits soldiers filed against the Israeli Ministry of Defence after they were used in the anthrax experiments. The soldiers demand that they be officially recognised as disabled veterans and receive compensation accordingly. The case remains in the courts, but the IDF, caving into pressure from the families of the soldiers and public opinion, recently announced that it would no longer conduct experiments on soldiers. 

It was Israel's first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, who ordered the construction of the IIBR on the basis of the advice of a number of Jewish scientists. Throughout his rule, from 1948 to 1963 (with the exception of the years 1953-1955 when �Moshe Shar

Los conductores solo echan un vistazo al pasar a esa gigantesca estructura en las dunas al sur de Rishon Litsion al sudeste de Tel Aviv. Está prohibido salir de la carretera Tel Aviv-Rishon Litsion hacia la vía lateral que lleva a ese edificio, parapetado tras muros de hormigón equipados con sistemas de vigilancia y advertencia de última tecnología desarrollados por las industrias militares de Israel.

Esa estructura, parecida a una fortaleza, es el Instituto Israelí de Investigación Biológica (IIBR, por sus siglas en inglés) en el cual Israel desarrolla sus armas biológicas y químicas y se prepara para cualquier eventualidad de guerra biológica o química. Es la instalación militar de máximo secreto en Israel. Está tan estrictamente protegida por la censura militar que la prensa israelí tiene que buscar pedazos de información en fuentes occidentales que las pueden recibir, de modo muy intermitente, a través contactos especiales del Instituto.

La prensa israelí ha tenido libertad de acción solo una vez para discutir lo que sucede detrás de esos muros de alta seguridad. Fue el mes pasado, cuando Avisha Klein presentó una demanda contra la administración del IIBR por acoso y abuso emocional. Empleado desde hace tiempo en el Instituto, Klein ha servido en varios puestos, en uno de ellos como parte de un equipo para desarrollar una pomada para proteger la piel del gas mostaza. Pero sólo es uno de los numerosos detalles que han salido a la luz durante los procedimientos, que han esclarecido considerablemente la naturaleza y alcance del trabajo del Instituto.

El IIBR emplea a unos 300 científicos y técnicos en sus numerosos departamentos, cada uno de los cuales se especializa en un área específica de la investigación química o biológica orientada generalmente a la producción de armas químicas o biológicas. Se informa de que uno de esos departamentos, por ejemplo, desarrolló el veneno que fue utilizado por la tristemente célebre unidad de asesinatos del Mossad, Kidon, en su fracasado intento de eliminar al jefe del politburó de Hamás, Khaled Meshaal en 1997. A pesar de todo, por si todavía quedara alguna duda sobre la exactitud de esta información, publicada en Haaretz, nadie discute que la primera vez que se utilizaron productos del Instituto en una operación de asesinato fue a finales de 1977 cuando el primer ministro Menachem Begin ordenó al Mossad que asesinara a Wadie Haddad.

Israel Institute for Biological Research

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
-
Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) is a government defense research institute specializing in biology, medicinal chemistry and environmental science, and is suspected of also developing biological and chemical weapons, as well as defenses against them. It is located in Ness Ziona, 20 kilometers south of Tel Aviv. IIBR has approximately 350 employees, 150 of whom are scientists.
IIBR is under the jurisdiction of the Prime Minister of Israel's office and works in close cooperation with government agencies. IIBR has many public projects on which it works in cooperations with international research organizations (governmental and non-governmental) and universities. Its research findings are often published in national and international scientific publications.

IIBR was founded in 1952 by Professor Ernst David Bergmann, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion's science adviser and the head of R&D at the Ministry of Defense, and Dr. Alexander Keynan. Keynan was IIBR's first director.

.

Some of the fields in which IIBR conducts research include:

Medical diagnostic techniques
Mechanisms of pathogenic diseases
Vaccines and pharmaceuticals
Protein and enzyme syenthesis and engineering
Process biotechnology
Air pollution risk assessment
Environmental detectors and biosensors

.
IIBR also has a non-public scope of operation.

.

Due to its secretive and defense-related nature, it is widely assumed that the institute develops vaccines and antidotes for chemical and biological warfare. Some sources speculate that the IIBR also develops offensive capabilities in these fields. The IIBR provided the poison and the antidote used in the attempted assassination of a Hamas leader (Khaled Mashal) in Jordan in 1997.

El Al Flight 1862, which crashed in the Netherlands in 1992, was carrying cargo destined for the Israel Institute for Biological Research which included 190 litres of dimethyl methylphosphonate, which could be used in the synthesis of Sarin nerve gas. The shipment was from a U.S. chemical plant under a U.S. Department of Commerce licence. Dimethyl methylphosphonate is now a Chemical Weapons Convention schedule 2 chemical.[1][2]

.

Life Science Research Israel

.

Life Science Research Israel (LSRI), a subsidiary of IIBR, is dedicated to the commercial exploitation of innovative technologies developed by IIBR. According to its 2000 annual report ([1], in Hebrew), the 2000 budget was 16.6 million NIS (about US $4 million), with revenues of 12.9 million NIS (US $3 million).

.

Markus Klingberg

Marcus Klingberg, IIBR's deputy director, was arrested in 1983 and convicted of espionage for the Soviet Union. His arrest and sentencing was kept a secret for over a decade. Klingberg was released to house arrest for medical reasons in 1998 (and completely in 2003), but remains silent about his career or treason according to an agreement he signed before being released.

Israel says El Al crash chemical 'non-toxic'

.

The El Al plane crashed into a block of flats

Israel has said that the chemicals being carried by a cargo plane that crashed into a block of flats in Amsterdam in 1992 were "non-toxic".The state-run Israeli airline, El Al, admitted on Thursday that its aircraft was carrying a chemical which is used in the production of the nerve gas sarin.
Friday, October 2, 1998 Published at 17:43 GMT 18:43 UK
But a statement from the office of the Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, quoted by Israel radio, said "the material was non-toxic and was to have been used to test filters that protect against chemical weapons".

 

"Israeli Government and aviation authorities acknowledged that the cargo included 190 litres of the chemical dimethyl methylphosphonate, but they insist the material was non-toxic and that it had been clearly listed on the cargo manifest in accordance with international regulations," the radio said.

 

 

 

Special correspondent Ben Brown: "Sarin is one of the deadliest substances concocted by man"
On Wednesday the Dutch media, citing the plane's freight documents, said the plane was carrying the chemical, which was being taken from a US factory to the Institute for Biological Research in Ness Ziona near Tel Aviv.
The Israeli authorities and the Dutch parliament have both ordered further investigations into the crash.

 

Questions raised

 

 

 

The local MEP for the area, Maartje Van Putten said she was outraged that the plane had been allowed to fly over the city carrying such a cargo.
A spokesman for El Al said they had informed the Dutch authorities at the outset of the investigation into the crash, which killed four crew members on the plane and 39 people in the apartment complex.

 

"Everything was done in accordance with international regulations," he said.

 

 

 

[ image: Up to 300 people are believed to be suffering from the effects]
Up to 300 people are believed to be suffering from the effects
Since the crash, six years ago, many residents near the site of the crash have complained of mysterious illnesses.
A report published on Wednesday by the Dutch health ministry showed that local doctors believed up to 300 residents could be suffering from effects caused by the accident.

 

They range from depression and nervousness to fatigue and listlessness.

Cargo was heading to Israeli plant

Correspondents say that the activities of the Ness Ziona institute, which was to receive the chemical, are classified.

But it is believed to be a facility for the manufacturing of chemical and biological weapons and antidotes for such arms.

DMPP has other uses beyond nerve gas. It is also used in building materials as a flame retardant, and transporting sensitive chemicals by air is a well-tried practice.

BBC Europe correspondent David Eades says, however, that as a country which insists it does not manufacture weapons of mass destruction - and nerve gas is one of those - Israel is bound to come under suspicion as to the purpose of this cargo.

Israel has accused Syria, Iraq and Iran of developing chemical and biological weapons.

Sarin nerve gas was used in March 1995 by the Japanese cult, Aum Shinri Kyo, which released it in the Tokyo underground, killing six people and injuring more than 3,000.

 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/185199.stm

 

The Dutch foreign ministry confirmed that it had already known about the presence of chemicals on the plane.
