By Novosti Donbassa

More than 100 armed terrorists have surrounded the Shakhyorsky Zori sanatorium in the Budyonnov district of Donetsk city.

They arrived there on Kamaz trucks. About 120 soldiers from the interior ministry forces are located in the sanatorium grounds.

The armed terrorists are still in the area. Salvos of automatic gunfire can be heard. Some of the terrorists have grenade-launchers, most are armed with rifles and some have Kalashnikovs. They have set fire to a number of tyres.
