145 Syrians killed in landmine explosions since Feb.

As many as 145 Syrians have been killed across Syria since February by the explosions of landmines and explosive devices from the war leftovers, a war monitor reported Saturday.

One-third of the deaths were women and children and the death toll could likely rise due to the number of wounded people, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

It’s the latest casualty to be reported by similar explosions in Syria.

Landmines have killed dozens of people in the formerly rebel-held areas amid government-led efforts to remove the mines for the safety of civilians.
