Civilian killed in the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in al Sayyad village in Hama on February 28

A man from Latmin village in the north of Hama governorate, named as Muhammad Sattouf al Mahmoud, was killed on February 28, 2021, when a landmine of unknown origin exploded in an agricultural land in west of al Sayyad village in the northern suburbs of the governorate, which is controlled by 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.
