Russian Rockets Strike Poland, Killing 2: Report

Benzinga · 11/15/2022 14:08

Two Russian rockets struck Poland Tuesday, killing two people, the Associated Press reports.

The incident comes as Russia has fired a barrage of missiles at Ukraine in the wake of its withdrawal from the country's Kherson region. 

The AP report attributed the information to an unidentified U.S. intelligence official and added that the Zet radio network in Poland reported a strike on a village near the Ukraine border. 

Poland, a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), has set an evening meeting of its national security committee due to an emergency, the AP report said, quoting a government spokesman. 

As a NATO member, Poland has the ability to invoke the organization's Article 5, which states that an attack against one ally is an attack against all members.
