Missile Falls on NATO Country.

A missile has reportedly fallen on Polish territory, and a meeting is scheduled at the National Security Bureau (BBN) at 1:00 PM today (Local time).

President Andrzej Duda had a telephone conversation with the head of the Ministry of National Defense, Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, regarding the missile that fell on Polish territory this morning. A meeting is planned for this afternoon at the National Security Bureau to discuss these events.

"I know from conversations that people heard a characteristic whistle. At the moment, we know that no one was injured, no one was hurt," Korzen assured.

According to TV Republika, Korzen informed that the 'object' fell on farmland.

"It is possible that the incident can be linked to today's early morning attack on Lviv and its surroundings. Perhaps we have a situation similar to the one in Przewodów last year," emphasized the deputy staroste of Tomaszów Lubelski.

Missile Killed Two People in Przewodów

The episode in Przewodów, to which Korzon refers, involves an incident that occurred on 15 November 2022, when a missile struck the Polish village of Przewodów near the Ukrainian border, resulting in the death of two people.

This event took place during a Russian attack on Ukrainian cities and energy facilities.

It was the first instance of a missile, as opposed to previous UAV incursions, fired from the Ukrainian army, landing and exploding within NATO territory amidst the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Initially, Ukraine accused Russia of striking Poland, while the United States suggested that the missile was likely an air defense missile fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian missile.

This assessment was later confirmed in September 2023 by the Polish Prosecutor's Office, which stated that the explosion was caused by an out-of-control air-defense missile S-300.
