Young boy died in a blast of a landmine of unknown origin in Kawa village in Hasaka on Nov 18

A male child, named as Najm Khader Eleiwi al Hanshoul, from al Sa’wa village which is administratively a part of al Kesra village in the western suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, died on November 18, 2020, due when a landmine of unknown origin exploded in Kawa village in the southern suburbs of Hasaka 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.
