Overnight Air Strikes Across Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 11 Aug.'08 / 10:14

The Russian air forces carried out series of strikes mainly on military installation across Georgia.

Sound of two powerful explosions was heard in Tbilisi at 4:40am local time on August 11. A bomb was dropped on the mount of Makhata in Tbilisi targeting a radar station there. Another bomb was dropped unpopulated area outside the capital city. 

Bombs were dropped early this morning in the center of Gori. An apartment building was hit, but no one was injured as many people have already been evacuated from this town, which is close to the breakaway South Ossetia.

Almost at the same time, the Russian warplanes dropped bombs on a runaway of the former military airfield in Dedoplistskaro in the Kakheti region, eastern Georgia. The airfield is not functioning for many years already.

Two bombs have been dropped on the Senaki military base and two others in the vicinity of the base. At least one person was reportedly injured.

An empty patriotic youth camp in Ganmukhuri at the Abkhaz administrative border was also attacked overnight on August 11.

At least three bombs were dropped in the Khelvachauri district of Adjara Autonomous Republic targeting a military unit there. No one was injured, officials said.

“Overnight, as many as 50 Russian bombers were reported operating simultaneously over Georgia, targeting civilian populations in cities and villages, as well as radio and telecommunications sites,” the Georgian government said in a statement this morning.

Series of air strikes came while French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and his Finnish counterpart, Alexander Stubb, are in Tbilisi trying to broker a ceasefire between the Georgian and Russian forces in South Ossetia.
