Aleppo - SMART

The National Police and Internal Security Center launched a campaign to raise children’s awareness of the danger of landmines and unexploded bombs in Al Bab, Aleppo, Northern Syria.

On Monday, Nov. 20,  2017, Faisal Qassab, a first lieutenant in the center told SMART that the campaign targets school children through tours and posters to ensure their safety and raise their awareness of the dangers of the unexploded missiles, landmines,  and cluster bombs. The campaign also aims to check schools and their vicinity without spotting unexploded bombs.

Qassab added that specialized officers supervised the campaign equipped with two trained dogs to spot the unexploded bombs. Qassab noted that the Islamic State implanted landmines  when it controlled  Al Bab, whereas cluster bombs were remnants of Russian bombings.

Qassab also noted that some landmines are covered , hidden, and can not be discovered easily. Qassab wished that the center had a device to discover landmines.

Qassab said that there are no accurate statistics for the number of the landmines and unexploded bombs in the city. Qassab added that in cooperation with the Civil Defense, teams dismantled 10,000 landmines since the Free Syrian Army regained control of the city in February. The Civil Defense said that landmines killed 150 civilians, according to Qassab.

The Civil Defense in Al Bab received equipment to remove landmines, discover metals, and detonate unexploded bombs. Three members of the Civil Defense were killed while dismantling landmines. The Civil Defense also plans to send teams to train in Turkey
