Shells hit three multistory buildings, partly destroyed a shop killed one and injured two, goes the report. The shelling damaged trolley depot, about 30 trolleybuses and busses, smashed windows in the dormitory and injured a worker as well as two workers who mowed grass at the time of shelling.
City residents report volley and explosion sounds in almost all districts.
Meanwhile, artillery fire overnight killed three civilians and injured five in Donetsk, the city council said on Thursday.“Artillery shelling destroyed eight houses, several sheds and one garage. A gas pipeline was damaged,” the council said.
The situation in Donetsk remains tense. Residents say heavy shelling, explosions and automatic gunfire are heard intermittently. But vital services and public transport are operating normally.
“Foodstuffs are being provided. The city’s shops offer the full range of goods, including socially important ones and basic necessities,” the council added.
