Child killed by a blast of landmine of unknown origin in Aqraba village in Daraa suburbs on November 7

A 10-year-old boy, named as Murad Khalil Yasin al Haj, was killed on November 7, 2020, when a landmine of unknown origin exploded in an area of open land near Aqraba village in the northwestern suburbs Daraa governorate. 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.
