Two civilians killed by a blast of a landmine of unknown origin in Idlib governorate on August 14

Two civilians, named as Hussein Muhammad al Sattouf and Mustafa Hussein Haj Ali, were killed and one child was injured on August 14, 2020 when a landmine of unknown origin exploded in a farmland near al Nayrab village in the eastern suburbs of Idlib governorate. 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.
