Two civilians were killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in E. Homs governorate on March 25

Two civilians were killed while another one was injured on March 25, 2021 when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded on the road between Rawd al Wahsh village and al Sekhna city in the eastern suburbs of Homs 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 controlling forces in each area to bear responsibility for protecting civilians in the areas under their control, to reveal the sites of all landmines planted there 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.
