Lack of awareness on the danger of war remnants results in serious injury of a child

The unexploded cluster bombs left by previous bombardment on populated areas still pose threats over citizens, where the crisis gets aggravated when children tamper with these remnants as a result of lack of awareness on their danger.

In this context, a cluster bomb exploded after being put in a heating stove in a residential house in Kafr Nouran west of Aleppo, which injured a child seriously.

On November 28, SOHR documented the death of a child displaced from Hama countryside to the controlled areas of the pro-Turkey factions in the north of Aleppo, due to the explosion of a landmine of the war remnants in the countryside of Afrin city.

Thus, it rose to 215 people including 61 women and 58 children, the number of people who were killed by mines and IED explosions in several areas of the Syrian territory in Homs, Hama, and Deir Ezzor since the beginning of January 2019 until today.

Among the total number of casualties the Syrian Observatory documented the death of 44 people including 30 women and 5 children, as they were passing over minefield areas, or arrested by groups of ISIS and executed during their search and collection of the truffle which grows in the areas that is subjected to heavy rain, and it is sold at very high prices.
