The attack hit a hotel in the city center where over 30 civilians were staying. Eleven people were injured, including a journalist from a Turkish publication who was staying at the hotel.

Four of the victims are men between the ages of 31 and 38, while seven are women aged 23-71, Syniehubov said.

He said that a 35-year-old man was in critical condition following the attack, and that nine victims were hospitalized due to their injuries. The others received medical treatment at the scene.
