A civilian was killed in the explosion of a mine in Deir Ez-Zour city on July 31

A 29-year-old civilian, Jasem Ali al Abeid, was killed on July 31, 2022 by the explosion of a landmine planted by unknown parties in al Hawiqa neighborhood in Deir Ez-Zour city, 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.
