The shelling was done by mortars.

The positions from which the terrorists were firing, were located in the vicinity of Artem Street and the “Lesnoy” city raion [district].

Thus, the pro-Russian terrorists have employed the tactics of using peaceful civilians as a shield–attacks take place from residential neighborhoods. This greatly complicates retaliatory actions by [Ukrainian] security forces.
