A Russian missile attack blasted homes in the southern Ukrainian city of Odesa on Friday, followed by a second missile that targeted first responders who arrived at the scene, officials said. At least 21 people were killed and 53 injured.

 

Reportedly, Russia army fired hypersonic missiles Iskander from the occupied Crimea. 

 

The dead included a paramedic and an emergency service worker. At least 53 other people were wounded, officials said.

 

At least 10 houses in Odesa and some emergency service equipment were damaged in the strike, which started a blaze, according to emergency officials and regional Gov. Oleh Kiper.

 

The tactic of firing a second missile at the same location, aiming to hit rescuers, is known in military terms as a double tap. Such strikes often hit civilians. Asked for an opinion most lawyers said it was a war crime.

 

Mr. Kiper announced that a day of mourning in Odesa would be held on Saturday — the second such observance in less than two weeks.

 

Russia attacked Odesa inhabitants targetting their apartments with missiles for the second time this month. On March 2, a Russian drone struck a multistory building, killing 12 people, including five children.
