In a devastating turn of events, a Russian missile strike targeted a school in Nikopol, located in Ukraine's Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, resulting in the deaths of four individuals.

Governor Serhii Lysak confirmed the casualties on October 11th, stating that the death toll had risen to four after rescue teams discovered the body of a 67-year-old woman beneath the rubble.

The missile strike didn't just devastate the school; it also caused significant damage to the surrounding area. According to Governor Lysak, 42 houses, 18 commercial buildings, an infrastructure facility, 17 solar panels, a shop, and a car were all affected by the attack.

A regular target for Russian aggression

Nikopol has been a frequent target for Russian military actions, lying just across from the Russian-occupied city of Enerhodar and the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.

Over the past day, the city and its vicinity have been subjected to multiple artillery and drone attacks, causing further damage to buildings and injuring a 78-year-old woman.

Initially, the casualties were reported to include a 60-year-old woman, a 70-year-old woman, and a 72-year-old man. Two men, aged 24 and 71, were also injured in the attack. The discovery of a 67-year-old woman's body later in the day brought the death toll to four.

The missile strike on the school and its subsequent impact on the community underscore the ongoing tension and violence in the region, raising further concerns about the safety of civilians caught in the crossfire.
