Two children killed by blast of landmine of unknown origin in Kafr Nasej village in Daraa suburbs on October 25.

Two children were killed on October 25, 2020 when a landmine of unknown origin exploded in Kafr Nasej village in the northern suburbs of Daraa 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.
