Civilian died on September 23 due to wounds inflicted by the blast of a landmine of unknown origin in W. Deir Ez-Zour

A man from al Joura neighborhood in Deir-Ez-Zour city, named as Abdul Hamid Khallouf al Suleiman, died on September 23, 2021 due to wounds inflicted on September 22, 2021 when a landmine of so-far unknown source exploded in al Bgheiliya village in the western suburbs of Deir Ez-Zour 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 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.
