MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. No night shelling was reported from DPR (self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk People's Republic) front-line areas as truce holds largely, but early on Wednesday the Donetsk airport zone came under fire, the Donetsk News Agency reports quoting local officials.
No shelling was fixed during the night along the whole line of contact, local administrations said. The former airport of the self-proclaimed republic came under fire from nationalist battalions, a law enforcement source told the news agency.
The fire was opened at about 9:40 am local time from 82-mm caliber mortars, he said, adding that it came from positions of Ukrainian troops near the settlement of Pesok.
The shelling of Spartak settlement located close to the airport and the settlement of Oktyabrsky on the northern outskirts of capital Donetsk was reported late on Tuesday.
According to the republican defense ministry, Spartak and Veseloye settlements on the northern outskirts of the capital and the airport area have been frequently shelled by Ukrainian troops over the past few days.
The Contact Group on resolving the crisis in Donbas agreed at the meeting in Minsk, Belarus, in late August to ensure complete ceasefire starting from September 1.
