A civilian was killed by the explosion of a landmine whose origin is so far unknown in Sarmin city in Idlib on June 8

Muhammad Haitham Aslan from Sarmin city in the northern suburbs of Idlib governorate died due to wounds sustained on June 8, 2020, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in the vicinity of the city. SNHR is still trying to contact witnesses to obtain more details of the incident.

SNHR calls on the governing forces in each area to bear responsibility for protecting civilians in the areas under their control, to reveal the sites of planted landmines and to remove them. We have documented hundreds of deaths and injuries resulting from landmine explosions, which will continue to constitute a real threat to people, particularly children, for several years to come.
