They’re only soldiers, after all

The echoes with Germany history are disturbing:

Israeli defence officials… have been… accused of “grave ethical failures'”… in testing an experimental anthrax vaccine on hundreds of Israeli soldiers.

Several… of 716 soldiers who took part in the experiment in the late 1990s have reportedly developed tumours and suffered infections while others have complained of headaches, dizziness, skin, respiratory and digestive problems that they say are related to the vaccine.

The panel of medical and legal experts said in a report obtained by the Associated Press news agency that the soldiers were not properly informed of the possible risks.
