Civilian killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in al Btoushiya village in Aleppo suburbs on March 13

A man, named as Ali Hasan al Allawi AL Hamed, who worked as a shepherd, was killed on March 13, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in al Btoushiya village located to the east of Tadef town in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate. 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.
