The US Military is under fire after a training incident gone awry.

According to a recent report, a group of soldiers were engaged in a training exercise in Bulgaria when a mistake sent them off course. The group was assigned the task of clearing and securing multiple structures on the US airbase in Cheshnigirovo  when they inadvertently strayed from the designated area and onto private property.

Task and Purpose said the soldiers with the 173rd Airborne Brigade then accidentally stormed the operating factory next door, seizing and clearing the premises of the company’s bewildered and, no doubt, terrified employees.

Some evidence suggests the factory, which reportedly produces equipment used in olive oil production, was entered by soldiers with weapons drawn, though the Army has stressed that no firearms were discharged in the incident. Either way, the media source Arms Watch has reported that the factory’s owner has since filed a lawsuit.
