Civilians killed, injured by the blast of a landmine of unknown source in E. Idlib on November 12

Two civilians were killed and two others injured on November 12, 2021, when a landmine of unknown source exploded while they were working harvesting olives on farmland in Sann village in the eastern suburbs of Idlib governorate which is under the joint control of factions from the Armed Opposition and Hay’at Tahrir al Sham. 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.
