BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Estonian Ministry of Defence claimed that they succeeded in detecting the probable place of NATO’s fallen missile, which was accidentally released during a training flight over the southern part of Estonia, on Tuesday.

An Air Force fighter of a Spanish Eurofighter Typhoon 2000 reportedly mistakenly launched an air-to-air missile AIM-120 AMRAAM in flight over the southern part of Estonia on Tuesday..

Commander of the Estonian Air Force Riivo Valge claimed that “In the morning we found out the likely place of the fall of the rocket,” at a press conference in Tallinn on Wednesday.

“With a probability of 95%, it can be argued that the missile that was missing the day before was found, but important details from it have not yet been found,” the commander added.

According to Valge, “the rocket fell in a marshy part of the Endla reserve, where there is no human habitation.”

The Estonian military has not yet figured out why there was an accidental launch of a missile in the sky over the republic.

Oooo Ha ooo Ha,

just imagine if that is a Russian rocket launched towards the one of members of the North Atlantic Terrorist Organisation in Europe.

What a mess would be in the Media, even preparations against “invasion” would be.

Oh my oh my,

we have a lovely sunny day.

Estonia , you better get ready for “accidental” Russian rockets. Too little countries will be sorry about it.
