According to a recent report, Russia is believed to be behind the strange “sonic attacks” that have left US diplomats with concussion-like injuries in Cuba and China. A sonic attack is a weapon that uses sound to injure, or even kill an opponent.

Multiple sources told NBC News that communications intercepts, or “signals intelligence,” that point to Russia as the culprit have been collected as part of an ongoing investigation by the FBI, CIA, and other agencies in the US.

The victims of attacks occurring in their homes or hotel rooms have suffered from brain injuries, hearing loss, cognitive problems, difficulty with balance, and problems with vision and hearing. Most of the victims reported to hearing high-pitched sounds such as “buzzing,” “grinding metal,” “piercing squeals,” and “humming,” but the FBI explained that sound waves alone would not be enough to cause these symptoms.

According to CNN, scientists are claiming that microwaves could be the source of the symptoms. Cuba has claimed they are not involved in the attacks, and they went on to call the attacks “science fiction.” The incidents are being probed by the State Department, and they have determined that they were indeed, attacks.

“The unexplained incidents have worsened relations between Cuba and the US, which pulled out most of its diplomats from Havana and tossed 17 Cuban counterparts from Washington,” according to the New York Post.

A spokeswoman at the US Embassy in Beijing said the State Department is taking the incident “very seriously” and is working to determine the cause and impact of it. A total of 26 US workers have been injured in these attacks.
