A landmine explosion killed a civilian in the outskirts of Al Susah town in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, east of Syria near the Iraqi borders.
Local sources reported the incident, the area where the landmine explosion occurred is under the occupation of the US-sponsored Kurdish separatist SDF armed group.
Landmines and IED (Improvised Explosive Devices) explosions have claimed the lives of thousands of Syrians, mostly children, and maimed tens of thousands of others since the beginning of the US-led war of terror against the country in March 2011. The US-sponsored terrorists and other proxies planted a massive number of landmines and IEDs in every town and neighborhood they infested since.
Despite the enormous efforts by the Syrian Arab Army’s engineering corps and the SAA allies and missions from friendly nations to locate and remove the landmines and all explosives left behind by the terrorists, the task is overwhelming and the sponsors of the terrorists in NATO member states are not cooperating with the Syrian authorities nor with the international organizations to provide the maps where these explosive devices are planted, on the contrary, NATO member states are hindering the efforts by the Syrian state and its allies to remove these killing devices by ways of sanctions and blockade imposed on the Syrian people preventing the ability to acquire the needed equipment.
