Hot spots were the villages of Luhanske, Myronivske, Novozvanivka in the Pivnich (North) sector and the town of Avdiyivka and villages of Starohnativka and Vodiane in the Skhid (East) sector.

"What is more, the invaders endangered civilians' life by insidiously shelling the village of Pivnichne, near Toretsk. Russian occupation forces lobbed an anti-tank guided missile into the courtyard of a house. Fragments damaged neighboring houses. Fortunately, there are no civilian casualties," the JFO HQ said.

No Ukrainian army casualties were reported in the past day.

According to intelligence reports, Ukrainian troops on June 28 eliminated two enemy fighters and another one was wounded.

On June 29, Russia-led forces again violated the ceasefire in Donbas, having opened fire from banned 120mm mortars near the village of Krymske. They also used grenade launchers and rifles.

Two members of Ukraine's Joint Forces received shell fragment wounds and were evacuated to a hospital. "Their condition is satisfactory," the JFO HQ said in a follow-up update.

As UNIAN reported earlier, enemy troops mounted 12 attacks on Ukrainian positions on June 27. One Ukrainian soldier was killed in action, another three were wounded in action.
