- Supersonic missile downed Malaysia Airlines plane, photos suggest
New photographic evidence of the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 suggests that a Soviet-era supersonic missile most likely took down the Boeing 777 jetliner over Ukraine last week. Photos published by the New York Times yesterday (July 21) offer a close-up view of debris from the plane crash, with pieces of the commercial jet riddled with small holes that experts say were likely caused by high-velocity shrapnel from an SA-11 missile. After analyzing the photo evidence from the crash, Reed Foster, an analyst with defense consultancy firm IHS Jane, told the Washington Post that the holes in the surface of the aircraft are fairly uniform in size, indicating that a fragmentation warhead likely caused them. This feature allows the missile to determine the appropriate distance from its target at which to detonate, said Ian Williams, Director of Advocacy for the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance in Alexandria, Virginia.

The flight ban was still in place on Wednesday, as Israel bombarded Gaza for a 16th straight day in an operation to stop rocket fire and destroy tunnels constructed by Hamas, the main power in the territory.
- Two Ukrainian fighter jets shot down over rebel-held territory
By Natalia Zinets and Gabriela Baczynska KIEV (Reuters) - Kiev said two of its fighter jets were shot down over the rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday, and the missiles that brought them down might have been fired from Russia. A spokesman for Ukraine's military operations said the planes were shot down near Savur Mogila, not far from where a Malaysian airliner was brought down last week, killing all 298 passengers on board. Ukraine's Security Council said the military jets were hit at the altitude of 5,200 meters by missiles that, according to preliminary information, were launched from Russia. The terrorists do not have such professionals," said Andriy Lysenko, the council's spokesman, referring to pro-Russian rebels fighting the government forces in eastern Ukraine.
