Al-Raqqah province: SOHR activists have reported the injury of a civilian in al- Mushayrafa village, three km east of Ain Eissa, in explosion of old landmine, while he was nearby the village.

On the other hand, a civilian found nearly 15 old landmines in Nirbeya village in the countryside of al-Bab city.

It is worth noting that Dozens of donum of agricultural lands in the eastern countryside of Aleppo and Ain al-Arab are still invalid for agricultural usage because of presence of landmines that were planted by ISIS before its defeat in the region.
