Civilian killed by blast of a landmine of unknown origin near Rasm al Dabea village in Hama on Aug 30

A man named as Gharib al Awdan was killed on August 30, 2020, and 15 other civilians were injured when a landmine of unknown origin exploded near a bus carrying them to their workplace near Rasm al Dabea village which is administratively a part of al Se’in town in the northern suburbs of Hama 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.
