Over the last 24 hours, militants have violated the ceasefire in Donbas 14 times, using mortars, grenade launchers, machine guns, and UAVs. As a result of the shelling, one Ukrainian soldier was killed and three others were wounded, the press center of the Joint Forces Operation reports.
The enemy twice opened fire on the Ukrainian defenders from grenade/rocket launchers near Mariinka. 120-mm and 82-mm mortars, as well as machine guns and small arms, were applied in the area of Avdiivka.
The occupants attacked positions of the Joint Forces near Zaitseve and used UAVs to apply a grenade launcher. It was also reported that fighters had fired at houses of local residents in that area with grenade machine guns.
