A child was killed in the explosion of a mine in eastern Homs governorate on June 15

A seven-year-old child, Hamouda Khaled al Sabr was killed on June 15, 2022 by the explosion of a landmine planted by unknown parties while he was playing in al Byarat al Gharbiya region west of Tadmur city in the eastern suburbs of Homs governorate, which is under the control of the Syrian regime forces.

SNHR is still trying to reach witnesses of that incident to get more details.

We demand that the controlling regime forces bear responsibility for protecting civilians in the areas under their control, and that they determine the locations of mines planted there and remove them.

We have documented hundreds of deaths and injuries as a result of mine explosions; these munitions will continue to constitute a severe threat to the population of these areas in years to come, especially to children.
