Civilians killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in E. Hama suburbs on June 19

A man, named as Hussein al Su’oud, was killed on June 19, 2021, when a landmine of unknown origin exploded near his car on the road linking Aqareb al Safiya and Abu Hanaya villages in eastern suburbs of Hama governorate.
The area is controlled by the Syrian regime forces, with SNHR still trying to contact witnesses and survivors 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.
