According to Syria TV, the mine was hidden by terrorists. Those injured were reportedly transferred to a local hospital, where some remain in critical condition.
Such incidents regularly occur in Syria since terrorists leave explosive devices, often in residential buildings, as they retreat from the onslaught of the Syrian government army.
The army's engineering units are currently carrying out a large-scale mine-clearing operation in retaken areas.
Since 2011, Syria has been engulfed in an armed conflict between the government and various opposition groups, including terrorist organisations. The government forces, led by President Bashar Assad, have now regained control over most of the country’s territories and concluded a ceasefire agreement with the opposition. Russia, Turkey and Iran are the guarantors of the ceasefire.
