In Donetsk city, the SMM heard four loud explosions assessed to be artillery or mortar fire on Oct. 5.

"On the following day the SMM followed up on reports that the explosions were anti-aircraft fire that shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which consequently crashed in a residential area. At the alleged UAV crash site the SMM observed that the roof and the living room of the affected house were damaged. The SMM also noted what looked like a fragment of an unidentified missile, which was shortly after collected by "DPR" members at the site," the report reads.
