A child, named as Haidar al Salim, was killed on February 7, 2021, when a landmine of unknown source exploded in Jouret al Arayes area in Baba Amr neighborhood in Homs city. 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.
