"Eight residents of Krasnohorivka have been injured," the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) headquarters said on Facebook, citing the Ukrainian monitors.

According to earlier reports, two females and one male were reported to have been injured in the attack on Krasnohorivka.

"Such terrorist acts committed by illegal armed formations of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic against civilians have again demonstrated the gross violation of the Minsk agreements, the deliberate planning and execution of terrorist attacks on the civil population," they said.
