Over the past day, Russian troops launched nine airstrikes against Kherson Oblast, hitting settlements with over 50 guided aerial bombs, Ukraine’s military reported on Nov. 5.
Although the report does not specify where all the aerial bombs hit, it says that an educational facility was destroyed as a result of the attack.
Earlier in the day, Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko reported that Russian troops dropped a guided aerial bomb at a village school in Kherson Oblast's Darivka district.
There were no casualties, Klymenko said. However, apart from the school, the attack also damaged six nearby houses.
The southern city of Kherson has suffered regular Russian strikes since its liberation in Ukraine's counteroffensive last fall. The city, with a pre-war population of 280,000, lies at the Dnipro River, not far from the Russian-occupied east-bank part of Kherson Oblast.
According to the military’s report, Russian forces carried out more than 80 artillery strikes against settlements in Kherson Oblast over the past day.
One civilian was killed, while five other people and a local police officer were injured. Four multistoried buildings, residential houses, two stores and a car were also damaged in the oblast following Russian attacks, according to the military.
