In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Belgian soldiers are sick due to electromagnetic radiations in Afghanistan.

Posted by seumasach on July 19, 2009

Belgian Armed Forces in Afghanistan are falling ill
probably due to the jamming equipment installed in their
armoured vehicles.
The Minister of Defence has started an inquiry.
All soldiers using Pander vehicles in Afghanistan are
complaining of headache and nausea. These complaints
are probably linked to radiations induced by the jamming
equipments installed in their vehicles.
Two soldiers of the 11th engineer battalion in Burcht were
already exempted and taken away from service by
doctors.
The Belgian soldiers are part of the International Forces for Security Assistance (ISAF) in Afghanistan. Facing
the many attacks toward the foreigner soldiers on the Afghanistan territory it was decided to equip Pandur with
Symphony jamming systems. This equipment emits radiation waves that have a harmful effect on the
Belgian military personnel’s health.
According to the Defence Agency these radiations are not over the standard limits but however an inquiry is
open.
