The US secretly modified the advanced HIMARS rocket launchers it gave Ukraine so they couldn’t be used to fire long-range missiles. The Wall Street Journal reported that Washington’s decision is aimed to prevent the escalation of war with Moscow. US officials also said that the modified HIMARS rocket launchers couldn’t fire long-range missiles, including the ATACMS. The Pentagon declined to comment on the modifications, which US officials said involves their hardware and software. Earlier, to guard against the risk of escalation, the US secured a commitment from Zelensky that the HIMARS wouldn’t be used to strike targets on Russian territory.
