Children killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in E. Aleppo governorate on June 26

Three children, including two brothers, were killed on June 26, 2021, when a landmine of unknown origin exploded in Khaled village which is administratively a part of Manbej city in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate which is controlled by Syrian Democratic 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.
