Two civilians killed when landmine of so far unknown origin exploded in Afrin city in Aleppo on Jun 24

Muhammad Ahmad Hamlikou and Eisa Hussein Muhammad were killed on June 24, 2020, when the landmine of unknown origin exploded in al Mahmoudiya Street in Afrin city in the northern suburbs of Aleppo governorate. 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.
