JFO: One Ukrainian soldier wounded amid 21 enemy attacks in Donbas in past day
Russia's hybrid military forces mounted 21 attacks on Ukrainian army positions in Donbas in the past 24 hours, with one Ukrainian soldier reported as wounded in action.
"According to intelligence reports, two troops of the Russian occupation forces were wounded," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) said in an update on Facebook as of 07:00 Kyiv time on July 3, 2018.
In the Luhansk sector, the situation was tense near the villages of Krymske and Prychepylivka, where the enemy used automatic grenade launchers and small arms.
During the last day, the enemy was also active near the Svitlodarska Duha bulge, where the Ukrainian positions came under fire from small arms near the villages of Luhanske and Novozvanivka. In addition, Russian-led forces shelled new positions held by the intelligence unit of the Joint Forces, which are on the eastern outskirts of the recently liberated village of Zolote-4. Having received an adequate rebuff, the enemy stopped shelling.
The Ukrainian positions near the village of Novoluhanske were attacked with the use of heavy machine guns and small arms. One Ukrainian soldier was wounded as a result of enemy fire.
In the Donetsk sector, the Russian-led forces opened fire from anti-tank grenade launchers to attack the defenders of the village of Pisky.
The hot spots in the Mariupol sector with the largest number of provocations were the villages of Vodiane, Hnutove, Shyrokyne, Pavlopil, Chermaly, and Lebedynske. Using grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms, the enemy tried to force the Ukrainian troops to fire back.
Despite the announced ceasefire from July 1, the Russian occupation forces have mounted three attacks on Ukrainian troops since the start of the day. They used grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms to fire at the defenders of Krymske in the Luhansk sector, as well as near Vodiane and Shyrokyne, which are in the Mariupol sector.
