Sibling children killed in blast of landmine of unknown origin in Wadi Sayel area in Raqqa on July 18

The sibling children Hamoud and Hussein Eisa al Kweid were killed on July 18, 2020, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in Wadi Sayel area in Badiya of Hneida village in the western suburbs of Raqqa 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.
