Syria: Two Children Murdered by NATO Landmines in Raqqa

Two more Syrian children were murdered by NATO landmines hidden by NATO supported terrorists in retreat, in Ain Issa, al Raqqa governate.

Two other children were injured in the blast, though the extent of their mutilation has not been released to the public. Fatal injuries to children, and amputations of their limbs have been an ongoing atrocity, a crime against humanity since the NATO Spring was inflicted on the Syrian Arab Republic, beginning in 2011, and with the wetworks committed by the world’s human garbage dumped into the ancient Levantine country — most of whom have criminally entered through Turkey, without ever having stepped on the almost 200k mines that were supposed to have been cleared from the border upon that country joining the Mine Ban Treaty back in 2003.

NATO weapons — including landmines — do not fall like manna from the heavens, into the arms of the criminally insane grateful ”moderate opposition,” nor are they placed under pillows by fairies. They are illegally brought into the country, many through that ignored border with Turkey.

The UN has shown its humanitarian concern for these atrocities to be twofold.

In July 2018, Agnes Marcaillou, Director of the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS), brought her delegation to Damascus to sign a Memorandum of Understanding which gave “UNMAS the right to support the efforts of the Syrian state to clear mines in order to save the lives of Syrian citizens from the serious effects of the mines planted by the armed terrorist groups in the places where they had been positioned during the years of crisis in Syria.”

Keeping meticulous statistics on Syrian death and dismemberment from landmines would appear to be the other. On 24 October 2019, Director Macaillou addressed the UNSC, showing her pristine capability in keeping numbers, while offering no updates claiming that UNMAS was assisting in clearing deadly mines.

Marcaillou's census was so impressive, she probably could have written the Book of Numbers.
UN Mine Action Service Director Agnes Marcaillou keeps excellent statistics.

Thirteen months and four days have passed since Macaillou offered her fastidious body bag and amputations data on landmines in Syria, to the Security Council. The author has lost count, and sincerely hopes the Director will update soon.
