estallido-mina
Damascus, Mar 8 (Prensa Latina) At least three civilians were killed when a landmine planted by radicals exploded in a residential neighborhood in the city of Deir Ezzor, the capital of the eastern Syrian province of the same name.

According to Provincial Health Director Bashar Shuaibi, the incident injured seven people, two of whom are in critical condition.

In turn, City Mayor Jarir Kakakhan explained to the press that the device was planted by the terrorists of the Islamic State (Daesh in Arabic) in an uninhabited building, which collapsed completely, in addition to damaging nearby houses and vehicles.

Nearly 100 civilians have been killed by mines planted by Daesh extremists over the last two weeks.

The Government recently revealed that the Army had deactivated more than 180,000 mines and other explosive devices, and charged that foreign occupation and the presence of radical groups in some regions block access and demining work.
