Donetsk, Jul 3 - DAN. Ukrainian forces shelled Yasinovataya outskirts and two settlements outside Gorlovka on Tuesday afternoon, head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Mission to the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination Ruslan Yakubov said.

“Ukrainian army units strikes on the axes Avdeyevka-Yakovlevka, Dzerzhinsk - Gagarina colliery settlement and Novoluganskoye-Dolomitnoye were recorded from 11:35 till 13:35,” Yakubov said.

The strikes were delivered with grenade launchers and small arms, he said.

Earlier reports said that JCCC observer groups had not recorded any ceasefire violations by Ukrainian forces over the past 24 hours.

A new truce, called “bread” ceasefire, came into effect in Donbass from July 1. The first violation of the ceasefire was recorded 9.5 hours later as Ukrainian forces opened fire at Dokuchayevsk.  Fifty-seven rounds were fired at DPR frontline areas on the first day of the truce. A KamAZ truck driver was seriously wounded in the shelling.*jk
