Civilian killed by the blast of a landmine of so-far unidentified source in W. Raqqa governorate on December 16

A man, named as Taha Ahmad al Muhammad al Musa, from Be’er Zaher village which is administratively a part of al Jarniya town in the western suburbs of Raqqa governorate, was killed on December 16, 2021, when a landmine whose source hasn’t yet been identified exploded in al Muwayleh village in the governorate’s western suburbs, 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.
