Two children aged 3 and 6 are among those injured in the attack on a medical clinic in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro on Friday, the head of the regional military administration has said.
Regional head Serhii Lysak said two adults were hospitalized with “heavy” injuries.
The Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s office has raised the number of injured to 16, adding that the strike hit a medical and veterinary facility in the city and that “a fire broke out as a result.”
In a short statement on Telegram the prosecutors office added that “the number of injured is being established. Private houses, multi-apartment buildings have been damaged.”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said earlier that one person had died and 15 had been left injured after the bombardment.
Scenes emerged of fires ripping through one of the buildings of the medical facility. The video, posted by a regional military official, also showed smoke billowing out of windows and a totally collapsed roof.
The international medical NGO Médecins Sans Frontières tweeted it was “supporting” Ukrainian emergency services at the scene of the strike.
