Civilian killed by blast of a landmine of unknown origin in Um Jalal village in Idlib on December 8

A man from Ma’ar Shahwar village in the northeastern suburbs of Hama governorate, named as Muhammad Jum’ah Deeb, was killed on December 8, 2020, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in Um Jalal village in the eastern suburbs of Idlib 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 all landmines planted there 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.
