Deir ez-Zor - SMART

On Saturday, two children were killed when a landmine planted by the Islamic State (ISIS) exploded in their home in the town of Abu Hamam, 75 km east of Deir ez-Zor, Eastern Syria.

The activist Abd al-Rahman Khuder told SMART that more than 50 civilians have been killed and about 30 wounded, causing amputations and mutilatios, by landmines in the past two months since the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) gained control of al-Shaitat area after clashes with ISIS. The SDF is an alliance of factions and military forces, sponsored by the United States, in Northern and Northeastern Syria.

Khuder pointed out that the authorities responsiblie for demining Abu Hamam had not yet entered the area in question. He called on international organizations to request the removal of mines as soon as possible.

Earlier, land mines exploded in the towns of Al-Kashkiya and Abu Hamam, killing four civilians, including a child and two women, while wounding two others. Other land mines killed three civilians, including a child and a woman, in Nahiyat al-Basira and al-Mayadeen, 46 km east of Deir ez-Zor.

On Feb. 4, activists documented the killing of 63 civilians from Deir ez-Zor. The victims were killed for various reasons both within and outside the governorate,  including land mine explosions, remnants of shelling and living in poor conditions.
