The Russian Armed Forces has moved its S-500 air defense system to occupied Crimea, the head of Ukraine’s Main Directorate of Intelligence Kyrylo Budanov said.

It is the latest addition to the Russian air defense family of systems, featuring better capabilities than its predecessors.

“The Russian air defense system is being strengthened,” Kyiv Independence quoted Budanov as saying.

“This is quite obvious and understandable. The newest elements of the S-500 have appeared. In principle, this will be their experimental application, but they have already appeared there [in Crimea].”

Around 50 detained Palestinian men from Gaza were released by Israel on Tuesday, the Turkish Anadolu news agency has reported. The released men showed visible signs of torture, as seen in videos and photos.

Several men appeared exhausted, gaunt and thinner than usual in photographs.

Palestinian sources said some 33 of the freed men were taken to Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza for medical attention "due to poor health conditions".

A video shared on social media from the hospital showed a young girl reunited with her previously-detained father. The young girl could be seen crying as she hugged her father, who was visibly exhausted as he laid in the hospital bed.

The man was reportedly detained for eight months by Israeli forces, and was tortured while in captivity.
