Rocket fire targets east Ukraine's Donetsk airport

9th September 2014, Comments 0 comments

The airport near the main rebel-held city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine came under rocket fire overnight, the Ukrainian military said Tuesday.

The transport hub, heavily damaged in fierce fighting in May, was hit by mortar and rocket fire four times during the night, the press service for the military's operation in the east said, but added that there were no victims.

There have been a number of reported violations of the shaky ceasefire signed on Friday between the Kiev government and pro-Russian rebels after five months of conflict, but overall it appears to be holding.
