A child was killed by the explosion of a landmine in eastern Aleppo on September 23

Ten-years-old child, Samir Yaseen al Aboud, was killed and another child was wounded on September 23, 2022, after the explosion of a landmine planted by an unidentified source in Deir Hafer city in eastern Aleppo governorate, which is controlled by Syrian regime forces.

SNHR is still trying to reach out to witnesses to the incident to obtain more details.

SNHR calls on the controlling forces to protect civilians in areas under their control, reveal the location of landmines, and remove them.

We have documented hundreds of deaths and injuries due to explosions of landmines, which will continue to constitute a threat to civilians in these areas, especially children, for years to come.
