Ukraine’s Odessa Port City Attacked By Iranian Drones

Ukraine said on Sunday that the southern port city of Odessa was attacked by Iranian-made drones, two days after a Russian attack with such a weapon killed two civilians.

Ukrainian army’s Operational Command South said; “Odessa was attacked again by enemy kamikaze drones.

"The enemy hit the administrative building in the city center three times.

“One drone was shot down by (Ukrainian) air defense forces.

"No casualties (were) recorded. These were Iranian drones.”

The speaker of Odesa Regional Military Administration, Serhiy Bratchuk, said the attack could have been launched by Iranian-made Shahed drones, which Russia had recently purchased from Iran.

This is not the first attack of kamikaze drones on Odesa.

The Russians attacked Odesa with kamikaze drones from the sea on September 23, resulting in one civilian killed.

It is also noted that the Russians hit an administrative building in the city center three times.

One of the drones was shot down by Ukrainian air defenses.
