The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) hit a Russian military camp near the Khalino airbase in Russia's Kursk Oblast overnight with at least 18 drone strikes, Ukrainska Pravda reported on Oct. 18, citing its source within SBU.

The exact number of casualties is being clarified, the outlet said. Ukrainska Pravda's source, however, said that the attack caused significant damage and noted that the military facility hosted up to 3,000 Russian soldiers and about 80 pieces of military equipment.

The news outlet published a video on its social media allegedly showing the explosions at the camp.

Bordering Ukraine's Sumy Oblast, Kursk Oblast's administration officials often report on drone strikes from across the Ukrainian border.

Ukrainian media reported on an earlier attack against the Khalino airbase on Sept. 24, which was said to kill or injure several high-ranking officers.
