The U.S. military says it is investigating reports that the Army is deploying a “fire suppression system” that could disrupt communications in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
A report in the Washington Post Monday cited two sources, citing an internal Army assessment, saying that “the Army is considering a system that could potentially disrupt communications.”
The system would be similar to the ones deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It would also be capable of disabling communications equipment in Afghanistan, according to the report.
The article did not elaborate on the system.
The U.N. Security Council approved a resolution in November to end U.K. involvement in Afghanistan by the end of the year.
The resolution calls for an end to military operations in Afghanistan as well as the U.M.A. withdrawal.
