One Killed in Landmine Blast in Syria’s Palmyra

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A landmine blast killed a civilian and injured another in al-Mask area on Jabal Shaer road, northwest of Palmyra, Syria’s Homs province.

The landmine, left behind by the Daesh terrorist group, went off while the victims were collecting truffles, SANA reported.

Director of General Authority for Palmyra National Hospital, Dr. Walid Odeh, said in a statement that the explosion claimed the life of a civilian and wounded another.

Before they were defeated, terrorist groups, including Daesh (ISL or ISIS), planted landmines and IEDs in the areas controlled by them in Syria, and hid them in the villages, towns and the agricultural lands.

Their aim was to cause the largest possible harm of the locals who return to their areas after their liberation from terrorism.
