04/08/2009 - Georgia Attacks again !!!
The situation in the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict zone rapidly deteriorated after Tskhinval and a number of other residential districts and
villages in South Ossetia were attacked in the evening of August 1. Combat with the use of small arms, grenade launchers and mortars ensued in the conflict zone for several hours. It resulted in the first human losses and substantial destruction. South Ossetia began evacuating its citizens to North Ossetia. In the first two days after the shelling, 2,500 residents left their homes.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry says its troops stationed in South Ossetia are on high alert. This comes after reports of further shelling of the republic by Georgia. The South Ossetian Ministry of Defense says the village of Otrev, near the capital Tskhinval, was attacked on Monday evening. “The situation is really worrying as provocation from the Georgian side continues on the eve of the first anniversary of the August 2008 events. Due to this, Russian army units and frontier guards stationed in South Ossetia have been put on alert,” said Andrey Nesterenko, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesman. He said that “The most important thing at the moment is to avoid any escalation and turn exchanges of fire into bigger conflicts.” “We have been and will do everything to ensure that,” Nesterenko added.
