Old ordnance | Civilian killed and man injured in landmine explosion in eastern Homs countryside

SOHR activists have reported the explosion of an old landmine, believed to be planted earlier by ISIS, in Al-Dawah area in the eastern countryside of Homs, leaving a civilian killed and injuring another.

This morning, SOHR activists reported that a young man sustained serious injuries due to the explosion of an old landmine near the soil barrier separating regime-controlled areas from SDF-held areas in Al-Hesayniyah town in Deir Ezzor countryside.

Accordingly, SOHR has documented the death of 99 civilians, including four women and 41 children, due to explosions of old landmines, unexploded shells and bombs across Syria since early 2022. In addition, 115 civilians, including eight women and 67 children, sustained various injuries in the same period. Among the total death toll there are a man and his son killed in the collapse of a war-damaged building in Darya city in Rif Dimashq.
