UNIAN reports that the ATO Press Centre has announced that government-held Avdeyevka, to the north-east of Donetsk Airport, is the scene of the highest tensions in the conflict zone today.

According to the report, Russian-backed fighters have opened fire on Ukrainian positions there three times over the course of the day.

On Friday, November 14, both Ukrainian military and separatist sources reported an attempted push on the town.

Nikolay Kolesnik, advisor to Dnepropetrovsk Governor Ihor Kolomayskiy and patron of the Krivbass territorial defence battalion, wrote on his Facebook page:

There are already two soldiers and three civilians killed in Avdeyevka. They're pummelling the checkpoints and right at the town. Here's your fucking truce, your ceasefire.

Meanwhile the separatist Strelkov_info VKontakte group posted the following "dispatch":

The Ukrainians are in Avdeyevka. This morning Givi [a separatist commander] had around a dozen 200s [Soviet military code for fatalities] and another 10 300s [wounded]. All Givi's losses were at the airport, not Avdeyevka.

Taking Avdeyevka today is unrealistic. 

Meanwhile, the ATO press announcement says that there have also been Grad rocket attacks on Ukrainian positions near Mariupol at Orlovskoye, the Zamozhnoye area of Chermalyk and further north towards separatist-held Telmanovo, at Granitnoye.
