Civilians were killed by blast from landmine of unknown origin in the vicinity of al Sheikh Maskin city in Daraa suburbs on July 14

Four civilians from the same family including two children were killed when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in the vicinity of al Sheikh Maskin city in the northern suburbs of Daraa governorate on July 14, 2020. 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.
