Government troops rebuff tank attack near Ilovaivsk, capture 12 militants

The anti-terrorist operation (ATO) forces have rebuffed an attack by Russian tanks and infantry and have taken 12 prisoners.
Donbas battalion commander Semen Semenchenko wrote thkis on his Facebook page.
“I have little information as nobody will say such things by phone. The commander one of their groups that broke out of the town phoned me. They were attacked by seven Russian tanks and an infantry battalion. They were attacked when moving. The attack was repulsed, and 12 prisoners were taken. I did all I could for them. Now it all depends on their stability and your prayers,” he wrote.
Earlier on Friday Semenchenko said that a column of ATO servicemen near Ilovaisk tried to leave the encircled area and had been ambushed by militants.
