Civilian died on Oct. 30, due to wounds sustained by a blast of unknown origin near Khan Sheikhoun city in Idlib

A man from Souran city in the northern suburbs of Hama governorate, named as Abdul Razzaq al Alloush, who was a member of a group picking olives, died on October 30, of wounds sustained on October 28, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded near a car carrying the olive-pickers in farmland near Khan Sheikhoun city in the southern suburbs of Idlib governorate. SNHR notes that the explosion also resulted in the immediate death of three other workers.  We are 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.
