Engineer killed by the blast of a landmine of so far unknown origin in Mray’iya village in Deir Ez-Zour suburbs on April 10

An engineer from al Mray’iya village in the eastern suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour governorate, named as Muhammad Ahmad al Bada’i, was killed on April 10, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in the village, 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.
