Civilian killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in al Jarniya village in Hama suburbs on March 10

A civilian, named as Ahmad Khaled al Steif, worked in herding sheep, was killed on March 10, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in a farmland near al Jarniya village in the western suburbs of Hama 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 mine explosions, which will continue to constitute a real threat to people, particularly children, for several years to come.
