Belgian Security Officials Advise Soldiers Not To Wear Uniforms Off Base

Belgian security officers advised, in messages sent on August 14 at various overseas Quiévrain units, military to avoid wearing the uniform outside of work hours. This recommendation is justified by the existence of a threat against the soldiers in Belgium.

“Recently some incidents took place against uniformed personnel on Belgian territory. Some extremist Islamist groups spread / have issued calls for violence against Belgian soldiers (…) It is advisable not to show unnecessarily in military uniform in public, “says one of these messages.

Just keep those floodgates open.
