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

A 23-year-old man, named as Ali Muhammad Hamarshou, from Brad village which is administratively a part of the northern suburbs of Aleppo governorate, was killed on August 25, 2021, when a landmine of so-far unknown origin exploded in the vicinity of Kaltouta village which is administratively a part of Afrin city that is controlled by Syrian Democratic 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.
