Two civilians killed by a blast of landmine of unknown origin in al Terwaziya village in Raqqa on February 25

Two civilians, from Hama governorate, were killed on February 25, 2021, when landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded near a car carrying them in al Terwaziya village which is administratively a part of Ein Eisa city in the northern suburbs of Raqqa governorate which is controlled by Syrian Democratic 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.
