Two weeks ago, rockets were fired and missed. Since then: a claim, an ultimatum, and an order. I know from reading elsewhere that things are happening, but you'd not know it from our article. There is simply not enough there to keep this on the main page. GreatCaesarsGhost 13:16, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

For the times when
<ref></ref> tags are being used, here are their contents:
