A hospital in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine was hit by artillery shelling.
“There are multiple casualties at the hospital. A preliminary count says more than 15 people were killed,” local emergency services told Interfax.
“The OSCE monitors should investigate the site of the attack, determine the direction and the location, from which the barrage was fired and report their findings,” a spokesman for the self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples’ Republic, Andrey Purgin, said.
Donetsk – a stronghold of forces opposed to the Kiev government – comes under artillery fire on a daily basis. The attacks continued even during the shaky ceasefire announced in September, but intensified in January when the truce collapsed.
A number of reports from international human rights organizations confirmed that at least some of the attacks came from Ukrainian side.
The civil war in Eastern Ukraine has claimed at least 5,358 lives, according to the latest UN count.
