South Ossetia under fire from Georgian territory
[A year ago FOX news tried hard and failed to blame this naff crap on Russia … ]
On August 8, 2008 Georgia launched a military offensive against its breakaway republic of South Ossetia with an intense bombardment of, among other targets, the Russian peacekeepers’ headquarters and residential areas in Tskhinval.
Two days later, the attack was repelled by the Russian army. The war lasted less than a week and paved the way for the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
One year since the military conflict in the Caucasus, it is feared that hostilities might resume. South Ossetian authorities claim the republic’s capital Tskhinval was attacked from a Georgian village.
Two shells were reportedly fired from around five kilometers away from the Georgian village of Nikozi during the night. Luckily, no one was injured, a source at the Ossetian Defense Ministry told Interfax agency.
This follows reports that one man has been killed and several people injured at the border between Georgia and South Ossetia.
