A man was killed and a child was injured today as a landmine left over from the Islamic State exploded in the town of Al-Baghuz, east of Deir ez-Zor province.
An increasing number of people killed recently by a landmine, unexploded bombs, and collapse of war-damaged residential buildings in various Syrian areas and cities such as Homs, Hama Deir Ezzor, Aleppo, and southern Syria.
The Syrian Observatory has documented since January 2019 to date some 314 fatalities, including 65 women and 95 children. Of the total number, the Syrian Observatory documented the deaths of 45 people, including 30 women and five children, in their search and collect for Syrian wild truffles, which put their lives at risk.
Syrian wild truffles grow in areas that are exposed to heavy rains and are sold at high prices.
