“NATO has planned the exercise, and the countries that have practiced are going to pay the damages. If a country is injuries, it is stated in NATO’s agreement that the country will cover 75 per cent, while Norway will cover 25 per cent, says Bø to the newspaper.
She says that the number of reported injuries will continue to increase as well. According to Bø, the Defense’s recommendation was that NATO forces should avoid damaging food soil.
