"The SMM observed a relatively quiet situation in the Donetsk region. At the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination observation point at "Donetsk People's Republic" ("DPR")-controlled Donetsk railway station (8km north-west of Donetsk city center), the SMM heard between 09:34 and 12:02 four bursts of small-arms fire 3-4km west of its location. At 17:51 the SMM heard one undetermined explosion 4.5km north-east of its position in the area of "DPR"-controlled Spartak (8km north-west of Donetsk)," the OSCE SMM said in its October 7 update based on information received as of October 6, 2015.
In the city of Donetsk, the SMM heard on October 5 four loud explosions assessed to be artillery or mortar fire. On the following day the SMM followed up on reports that the explosions were anti-aircraft fire that shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which consequently crashed in a residential area. At the alleged UAV crash site the SMM observed that the roof and the living room of the affected house were damaged. The SMM also noted what looked like a fragment of an unidentified missile, which was shortly after collected by "DPR" members at the site. The owner of the house (female, early sixties) stated that following the four explosions she had heard and saw several pieces of metal falling from the sky. According to the interlocutor the "DPR" members had also collected these fragments.
