Deir Ezzor | Girl di*es and her brother injured by a rifle while playing with it

Deir Ezzor province: A ten year-old girl was shot dead and her brother was injured severely, while they were playing with a rifle in their family’s house in Al-Jalaa Village in eastern Deir Ezzor countryside within areas of regime forces and Iranian militias.

This comes in light of the ongoing security chaos and spread of weapons among civilians.

On February 5, three children were severely injured due to the explosion of two landmines of war remnants in two areas in Deir Ezzor countryside, where a child was injured in Al-Ashara Town and one of his upper limps were amputated.

Moreover, a landmine exploded in Al-Shamitiya Town in western Deir Ezzor countryside and two children were injured and were taken to a hospital to receive proper medication.
