Old ordnance | Displaced man from Hama countryside killed east of Idlib

SOHR activists have documented the death of a civilian in the explosion of an old landmine in Al-Neirab area in areas controlled by Hayyat Tahrir Al-Sham and factions east of Idlib.

It is worth noting that the victim is a displaced man from Halfayah in northern Hama countryside.

Yesterday, SOHR activists documented the death of a driver of a drilling vehicle, due to the explosion of a landmine planted between the scrap, where the explosion caused a fire to break near the iron smelting factory in the industrial city of Hasiya’ in eastern Homs countryside.

Accordingly, SOHR has documented the death of 152 civilians, including ten women and 70 children, due to explosions of old landmines, unexploded shells and bombs across Syria since early 2022. In addition, 233 civilians, including 15 women and 126 children, sustained various injuries in the same period.

Among the total death toll, a man and his son were killed in the collapse of a war-damaged building in Darya city in Rif Dimashq, as well as the death of four civilians in the collapse of another building in Jubar neighbourhood.
