A child was killed in the explosion of a mine in northern Raqqa on July 30

A nine-year-old child, Yousef al Saeed, from al Ahmadiya village of Tal Abyad city in northern Raqqa governorate, was killed on July 30, 2022 by the explosion of a landmine planted by unknown parties in al Ahmadiya village, which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic 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.
