According to a Telegram update from Serhii Lysak, the chief of the regional administration, debris from the intercepted missiles injured six people.

The intercepted missiles caused considerable damage when their debris fell onto the city, igniting fires and damaging civil infrastructure.

Among the injured are a one-month-old boy, who is currently in stable condition, and a 17-year-old boy, who remains hospitalized in moderate condition.

The incident also injured three women, aged 32, 36, and 56, and a 68-year-old man. One of the women is in moderate condition and has been hospitalized.

Fifteen vehicles were damaged, and multiple private households, apartment blocks, and a hospital experienced shattered windows from the blast wave.
