Civilian killed by a landmine blast in Kafr Sajna village in Idlib suburbs on November 1

A man from Kafr Sajna village in the southern suburbs of Idlib governorate, named as Abdul Qader Radwan Gharraa, who was a student at a health institution in Homs governorate, was killed on November 1, 2020, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in his home 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.
