Female child died on September 23 due to wounds inflicted by the blast of a landmine of unknown source in N. Aleppo

An eight-year-old female child, named as Roulaf Muhammad Ali, died on September 23, 2021 from injuries inflicted in a landmine explosion on September 22, 2021 that injured three other children, when the landmine of so-far unknown source exploded in Ahdath village which is administratively a part of al Shahbaa district in the northern 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.
