Civilian killed by a blast of a landmine of unknown origin in the outskirts of Khan Sheikhoun city in Idlib on February 16

A man, named as Amer Radwan al Khrashi, was killed while other civilians were injured on February 16 when a landmine of unknown origin exploded while they were working on agricultural land in the outskirts of Khan Sheikhnoun city in the southern suburbs of Idlib governorate, which is under the control of Syrian regime forces. 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.
