Landmine explosion leaves several people of the same family dead or injured in rural Ain al-Arab  

SOHR activists say that a landmine left over from the war exploded in a house in the village of Bouzek in rural Ain al-Arab, killing two persons and injuring five others, all of the same family.

A family member, who is a soldier in SDF, brought the mine into the house before it exploded.

An increasing number of people killed recently by a landmine, unexploded bombs, and collapse of war-damaged residential buildings in various Syrian areas and cities such as Homs, Hama Deir Ezzor, Aleppo, and southern Syria.

The Syrian Observatory has documented since January 2019 to date some 275 fatalities, including 65 women and 79 children. Of the total number, the Syrian Observatory documented the deaths of 45 people, including 30 women and five children, in their search and collect for “Syrian wild truffles”, which put their lives at risk, “Syrian wild truffles” grow in areas that are exposed to heavy rains and are sold at high prices.
