Nuclear storage: Eilabun is Israel's second weapons storage facility and is located in the north near the Sea of Gallilee. Tactical nuclear shells and landmines are among its contents.
Location: Eilabun is located near the town of the same name just west of the Sea of Gallilee off Route 65.
Contents: There, reportedly, are stored the nuclear artillery shells, nuclear landmines and other tactical nuclear weapons - possibly including neutron bombs - that would be needed to deter or fight a superior conventional force approaching from the northeast, i.e. Syria.
The landmines stored here would be taken to holes previously dug along the base of the Golan Heights during a crisis with Syria. The U.S. and Russia both had such landmines, but have abandoned them. The artillery shells could be used to halt a Syrian tank column or devastate targets as far away as Damascus.
