Hama Province: SOHR sources have reported that a young man was killed as a result of ERW in the vicinity of Sheikh Hilal area in Al-Salamiyah countryside, northeast of Hama.
Syrian Observatory activists documented the death of 660 people, including 95 women and 239 children, by mines and IED explosions and the collapse of cracked residential buildings in several areas of the Syrian territory in Homs, Hama, Deir Ezzor, Aleppo, and the Syrian South since early January 2019.
SOHR calls on all the relevant international organisations to work on the immediate neutralising and removal of unexploded war ordnance in Syrian. Explosive remnants of war (ERW) are a serious problem that need to be addressed urgently. SOHR would like to see, as a first step, the immediate involvement of international organisation in raising the awareness of local Syrians of the dangers of ERW.
