Old ordnance | Landmine explodes in Ain al-Arab countryside (Kobani), injuring four children

SOHR activists have documented the injury of four children due to the explosion of an old landmine in Sheyoukh village in Ain al-Arab countryside (Kobani) in eastern Aleppo, while they were grazing sheep in farmlands there.

 

On August 2, SOHR activists reported that an old landmine exploded on the outskirts of Maarbeleit village in the southern countryside of Idlib, injuring a man while he was picking figs.

 

It is worth noting that landmines and old ordnance pose a great threat to civilians during harvest seasons, shepherding sheep and cattle and searching for the capers plant.
