Some of the injured children, including two infants under one year old, are in serious condition and are currently hospitalized».

Honchar stated that, according to preliminary information, the attack involved an X-59 missile. As of now, around 400 apartments have suffered varying degrees of damage and destruction. A headquarters to distribute necessary building materials have established in the city.
