Donetsk, Oct 16 – DAN. Ukrainian forces fired over 100 artillery and mortar rounds at DPR frontline areas over the past 24 hours, DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin said on Monday.

“On Donetsk axis, the enemy used tank guns, mortars, infantry fighting vehicle cannons, grenade launchers and small arms. Kiev forces fired 10 tank gun rounds, 42 120mm mortar rounds and 55 82mm mortar rounds at 30 townships areas,” Basurin said.
Zaitsevo outside Gorlovka was shelled with infantry fighting vehicle cannons, grenade launchers and small arms.

Overall, 35 violations of the ‘school ceasefire’ have been recorded. The enemy targeted 14 townships in DPR.

The ‘school ceasefire’ has been agreed to by the sides as the new academic year is to begin in Donbass on September 1. It came into force at midnight August 25. It hasn’t proved to be durable, thought in the first hours the security situation along the contact line stabilized. *ot
