Earlier this morning, Ukrainian forces shelled a school playground in the rebel capital city of Donetsk, killing at least 10 people, one of whom was identified as a rebel fighter, and the others all civilians.
The attack occurred shortly after the school-day began, so none of the students themselves were at the playground at the time. The school’s biology teacher, along with one of the students’ parents, were among the slain, however.
The Ukrainian military, as usual, inexplicably claimed that the rebels had launched the attack, on a school in their own territory, while the rebels insisted that the military was targeting their fighter, and that the death toll was higher, with two other unidentified victims among the slain.
It’s the second incident in Donetsk this week, after nine soldiers were killed in a clash with rebels on Monday near the airport. Despite this, the ceasefire continues to hold across much of the nation.

A shame we'll most likely never hear the extent of the crimes committed by Poroshenko.
Do you notice only American allies like Israel and Ukraine kill children and attack schools? MSM is silent, but when a muslim kills somebody, hell breaks loose.
Biden has already sent Poroshenko his congratulations on breaking the ceasefire.
My guess: Poroshenko didn't much like the terms of the ceasefire deal, but signed on anyway in order to to buy some time to regroup after a severe military defeat. Now, he wants the ceasefire and its unsatisfactory terms to "go away", so he's provoking the rebels, hoping to blame them for a resumption of the fighting. Unless Poroshenko goes all in however, it is unlikely to work. Bottom line: Putin is way better at this game than the Chocolate billionaire, ***AND*** holds a way better hand.
Right. My first reaction would be a full counterattack – which is probably just what NATO is hoping for.
Putin is thinking the long game and so far it's paying off. In the end he'll probably get the whole region handed to him gift wrapped – if he keeps his cool, which he seems to have an abundance of.
USG will do everything possible to start the third worked war, or war with Russia. From Ukraine to Syria to Iraq to ISIS to Hong Kong is about Russia's and China, the war plan drown by the U.S. Democratic Party, the other other war party.
