Four civilians were killed by a landmine explosion on a land farm in the province of Hama, Central Syria yesterday, Wednesday 28 December 2022, a Hama police spokesperson stated.
The Hama police spokesperson said in the statement carried by the Syrian news agency SANA that the four farmers died on the spot when they moved over a landmine planted by the ISIS (ISIL – Daesh) terrorist group in the Tal Salamah area in the eastern countryside of the city of Al Salamiyah in Hama province.
The police spokesperson did not name the victims in the statement, usually, official reports in Syria do not name the victims of terrorist attacks for unknown reasons.
NATO-sponsored freedom fighters aka moderate rebels planted tens of thousands of landmines and assorted improvised explosives IEDs all over the areas they infested in their quest to spread democracy, freedoms, and western values in the country, thousands of Syrians have been killed, tens of thousands maimed especially children and farmers including entire families from these killing tools.
Syria still awaits proper contribution from the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) to clear the regions liberated from Al Qaeda and ISIS freedom fighters taking into consideration that the sponsors of these terrorists refuse to hand over the maps where the landmines are planted and are impeding the work of international bodies and the importing of the tools needed to locate and destroy the different types of explosives all over the country.
Clearing the landmines and explosives is an overwhelming task for the Engineering Corps of the Syrian Arab Army and some friendly countries helping in this regard who are risking western sanctions.
