Air defense forces reportedly destroyed a significant portion of the missiles. Others destroyed the port infrastructure and at least six residential buildings, including multi-story apartment buildings. Dozens of vehicles were destroyed, and many buildings in the city suffered damage to facades and roofs, with windows blown out.
