Two children killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in E. Aleppo governorate on September 1

Two children, named as Dayyar Muhammad Hasan and Muhammad Ali Hamki, aged 15 and 14 respectively, were killed on September 1, 2021, when a landmine of unknown origin exploded on farmland near Seftek village which is administratively a part of Ein al Arab city in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate which is controlled by Syrian Democratic 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.
