Russian armed groups have once again cynically attacked civilian infrastructure in a Donbas frontline settlement, Joint Forces Operation HQ reported Friday.

Today, the invaders opened fire on a residential neighborhood near the Avdiyivka industrial zone. As a result, a civilian woman, 65, sustained a gunshot wound in the leg.

The wounded woman was rushed to a local hospital and provided qualified medical assistance.

She is now in satisfactory condition with no threat to life.

The team of the National Police's Main Directorate in Donetsk region is working at the scene, clarifying circumstances of the incident.

"The invaders once again neglected the rules of warfare defined by international humanitarian law and demonstrated a cynical attitude to the life and health of defenseless civilians," the JFO HQ wrote on Facebook.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russian occupation forces on Friday five times violated the ceasefire in Donbas.
