A civilian was killed by the explosion of remnants left by previous shelling in northeastern Idlib governorate on June 22
Muhammad Kheik Abdul Razzaq al Ali from Afes village in northeastern Idlib governorate was killed on June 22, 2022 by the explosion of munition remnants left by previous shelling of the village by unidentified parties.
The area is currently under the joint control of Armed Opposition factions and Hay’at Tahrir al Sham. SNHR notes that weapons remnants continue to pose a serious threat to civilians, and has issued a large number of reports on cluster munitions and other weapons remnants, calling for special equipment to help the local residents remove all kinds of explosive devices.
SNHR has regularly documented the Syrian regime’s use of personal landmines that will continue to constitute a severe threat to the population of these areas in years to come, especially to children. We’ve documented hundreds of deaths and injuries as a result of cluster munition explosions and the international community must intervene to protect civilians in Syria from the continuing killing.
