Civilian killed by the blast of a landmine of so-far unknown origin in S. Idlib suburbs on July 28

A man from Souran city in the north of Hama governorate, named as Yousef Ibrahim al Omar, was killed while other civilians were injured on July 28, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded near a group of workers picking pistachios near Khan Sheikhoun city in the southern suburbs of Idlib governorate which is controlled by Syrian regime forces.
SNHR is 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.
