In the early hours of the morning, the city of Kharkiv was rocked by a series of devastating drone strikes, resulting in the tragic loss of six lives and leaving several others wounded. The attack, which targeted residential areas, has been attributed to Russian forces, marking a grim escalation in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

According to local officials, including the Governor of the Kharkiv region, Oleh Syniehubov, the strikes caused significant damage to infrastructure, hitting high-rise buildings and a petrol station. The emergency services worked tirelessly to extinguish the fires and provide aid to the victims. The mayor of Kharkiv, Ihor Terekhov, condemned the attack, labeling it as an act of terror and highlighting the indiscriminate nature of the strikes that put innocent civilians at risk.

The use of Iranian-made Shahed drones in the assault has been confirmed by Ukrainian authorities, who reported that several buildings, including apartment blocks, were struck in the early morning assault. This incident comes amidst a series of intensifying attacks on Kharkiv, raising concerns about the potential for a larger offensive in the region.
