The death of a civilian in the explosion of remnants of previous shelling on Ma’aret al Numan city in Idlib, on October 20

Najm Deeb al Asfar was killed on October 20, 2019, in the explosion of a cluster munition of remnants of previous shelling by Syrian- Russian Alliance forces on Ma’aret al Numan city in the southern suburbs of Idlib governorate. Yet, the remnants of weapons constitute a real threat to civilians in the areas controlled by factions of armed opposition. SNHR has issued a number of reports on cluster munitions and remnants of weapons where we urged to have special equipment that helps civilians in removing explosive remnants.
