A woman and her husband were killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in east of Hama on March 24

A woman, named as Shu’aa Ali al Namr, and her husband, Muhammad Hasan al Hajji, were killed on March 24, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded near the motorcycle they were on on the road linking Wadi Atheeb area and al Se’in town in the eastern 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 landmine explosions, which will continue to constitute a real threat to people, particularly children, for several years to come.
