Child killed by a blast of landmine of unknown origin near Abu Hreij village in Hama on November 29

An 11-year-old boy, named as Ghazi Shaker al Dandal, was killed on November 29, 2020, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in agricultural land near Abu Hreij village in the eastern suburbs of Hama 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.
