Landmine kills 3, wounds 7 in Syrian Kurdistan: report

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — An ISIS remnant landmine killed three children, and injured seven others south of al-Hasaka city near a garbage dump, according to multiple reports.


The explosion took place around noon, ANF News reported.

The outlet is close to the PKK. It said initial reports indicate three children were killed and seven others were wounded.

The explosion was on the outskirts of the western Nashwah neighborhood on the road between Abyadh and Jabal Abdul Aziz, Syria's state-run SANA reported.


The agency put the death toll at one and described the seven injured as critical.


Hasaka is the northeasternmost governorate in Syria, 58 kilometers from the Iraqi border.

Hasaka is controlled by the US-led international anti-ISIS coalition's partnered ground force, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The SDF is primarily comprised of the mostly-Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG).

Neither the SDF, YPG, their media, nor coalition immediately confirmed the incident.

SANA reported on Tuesday that coalition airstrikes killed 25 civilians in the govenorate.

 

YPG and YPJ forces announced they liberated the city from ISIS in February 2015.
