Child killed by the blast of a landmine in N. Hama governorate on November 7

A five-year-old child, named Ibrahim Ahmad al Mahmoud, from Souran city in the northern suburbs of Hama governorate, was killed on November 7, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown source exploded in Zamyoun area near Souran city which is controlled by Syrian regime 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.
