Child died in a blast of a landmine of so-far unknown origin in the vicinity of Deir al Adas village in Daraa on Dec 19

A 15-year-old boy, named as Qasem Samer al Adawi, was killed while two other children were injured on December 19, 2020, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded while they were in agricultural land in the vicinity of Deir al Adas village in the northern suburbs of Daraa 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.
