Pro-Russian militants used grenade launchers to fire at a residential quarter in Avdiivka town, not far from Donetsk. ATO Press Centre posted this at Facebook.
“The mercenaries shot from within the territory they are holding, firing at the town’s area where there are no Ukrainian positions”, the ATO Staff noted. No casualties among the civilians were reported so far.
On December 17, the Head Department of Intelligence at Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said the militants used Grads, the multiple missile launchers, and, by mistake, fired at one of the sections in the conflict zone. “The missiles hit the area where they never intended to shoot at”, the Ukrainian intelligence reported.
