In particular, enemy troops fired hand-held anti-tank and under-barrel grenade launchers twice near the village of Shumy. Also, they opened fire with automatic rifles near the town of Avdiyivka and the village of Pisky.

The shots posed no threat to the lives and health of Ukrainian soldiers so the Joint Forces did not return fire, the JFO HQ said.

The situation is under full control of the Ukrainian military.
