Civilian killed in a blast of landmine of unknown origin near Souran city in Hama suburbs on October 19

A man named as Abdul Razzaq Abdul Rahman Hassani was killed on October 19, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded on farmland where he was working near Souran city 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.
