Old ordnance | Landmine explodes killing civilian in northern Hama countryside

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the death of a man, as a result of the explosion of an old landmine left over from the Syrian war on agricultural land in the village of Al-Magheer, which is under the control of regime forces in northern countryside of Hama.

SOHR activists have documented, earlier today, the death of two children from Um Huwaish village in the western countryside of Tel Abyad in northern Al-Raqqah, after the explosion of an unexploded shell while they were tampering with it.

On the other hand, an old landmine exploded in Al-Jalaa district in Al-Bokamal countryside in eastern Deir Ezzor, injuring a man from the area and his son.

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 478 fatalities, including 72 women and 151 children. Of the total number, the Syrian Observatory documented the deaths of 112 people, including 45 women and six 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.
