Civilian killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in al Mughir Hama suburbs on March 13

A man from Kernaz town in the northwestern suburbs of Hama governorate, named as Ahmad Za’im al Hammadi, was killed on March 13, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded under the tractor he was in while he was working on farmland in al Mughir village in the northern suburbs of the 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.
