KYIV (Reuters) – One person was killed and six injured in overnight rocket attacks in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region, Ukraine’s interior minister said on Tuesday.
Rockets hit a hospital in the town of Selidove and a coal mine, Ihor Klymenko said on the Telegram news service.
“Two hospital buildings were damaged and six civilians were injured. There may be victims under the rubble, search operations continue,” Klymenko said.
A worker was killed in the attack on the coal mine, he said.
“Four buildings, 19 vehicles and a power line were damaged. 39 miners were trapped underground. So far all miners have been brought to the surface,” he said.
Reuters was unable to verify the report.
Invading Russian forces have occupied large parts of Donetsk and Russia has said it intends to take over the entire region.
