Civilian killed by a blast of landmine of so-far unknown origin in al Twaimin village in Hasaka on July 22

A man from al Twaimin village in the southern suburbs of Hasaka governorate, named as Abdul Razzaq al Shatb, was killed on July 22, 2020, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in the village. 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.
