Child killed by the blast of weapon remnants of unidentified source in N. Homs governorate on December 30

A four-year-old boy, named as Omar Bahbouh, was killed while two other children were injured by the blast of munitions left over from previous bombing, whose source hasn’t yet been identified, while he was playing with them in al Za’farana village in the northern suburbs of Homs governorate on December 30, 2021.
Such munitions continue to constitute a real long-term threat to the people of Syria. SNHR has issued a number of reports on cluster munitions and the dangers posed by the remnants of these and other weapons, in which we urged the provision of special equipment to help civilians in removing these explosive remnants.
SNHR has also documented the Syrian regime’s use of anti-personnel mines which will continue to constitute a grave threat to residents of these areas, particularly children, for many years to come. We have recorded hundreds of injuries caused by the explosion of remnants of cluster munitions, and the international community must intervene to protect civilians in Syria from these ongoing killing operations.The child Omar Bahbouh killed by the blast in Homs 30-12-2021
