Civilian killed by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in N. Hama governorate on August 25

A man from Tal Adda village in the east of Hama governorate, named as Muhammad Khaled Shadhan, was killed on August 25, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded on farmland in Kafr Zita city in the northern suburbs of Hama governorate 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 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.
