On Wednesday morning, November 1, the Russian occupiers reported a missile attack on the Crimean Peninsula. 

Eyewitnesses claim that the impact was at the Russian military bases in the area of the Arabat Spit, "Crimean Wind" reports.

According to available information, some of the missiles probably reached their targets in the occupied part of the Kherson region. According to preliminary data, two recreation centers on the Arabat Spit, where the Russian occupiers were located, were hit.

Referring to the testimony of locals, "Crimean Wind" reports that ambulances and fire engines rushed from Henichesk toward the places of probable strikes.

"Today's attack was successful: the sites of the Russian military deployment in at least two captured resort facilities on the Arabats Spit were hit, probably by rocket strikes," the statement said.

The initial reports show the missiles flew to two recreation centers in the village of Strilkove, Kherson region, where the occupying forces were stationed.

"Missiles hit two recreation centers — boarding houses 'Yunyi' and "Blakytne Plumia" in the village of Strilkovo. Russians captured these children's sanatoriums, and their troops are located there," said residents of the Henichesk community, quoted by "Crimean Wind."
