Conference Call: Syria's Chemical Weapons and WMDs

As the international community grows increasingly concerned about Syria's assembling of chemical weapons and its WMD stockpile, The Israel Project held an on-the-record conference call with Dr. David Friedman, an expert on weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and former head of IDF Chemical/Biological Protection Division. 

Dr. David Friedman is a senior research fellow at INSS. His research focuses on non-conventional terrorism, with particular attention to strategies for confronting bioterrorism, including preventing the proliferation of biological weapons to terrorist groups. 

For nearly 25 years, Dr. Friedman served in the IDF and Israel Ministry of Defense, mainly in the R&D directorate. He was responsible for R&D projects in the field of chemical / biological defense. He retired from the IDF in 1994 at the rank of colonel, serving as Head of the Chem/Bio Protection Division. He then joined the IMOD where he served as Special Assistant for Bio/Chem Defense in the office of the Assistant Minister of Defense. He holds a Ph.D. in Life Sciences from the Weizmann Institute of Science.
