Two children killed by explosion of unexploded bomb in Girê Spî
In occupied Girê Spî in northern Syria, two children were killed when an unexploded bomb detonated.
In the Turkish occupied zone of Girê Spî (Tal Abyad) in northern Syria, two children were killed when an unexploded bomb exploded. The Rojava-based ANHA news agency reports that the two victims are two minors aged twelve and fifteen.
According to the report, the detonation occurred in the village of Um Huweysh in western Girê Spî. The children were apparently playing when the projectile exploded. It is unclear how long it had been in the settlement. It can be assumed that it was ammunition from the occupation forces. Girê Spî, like Serêkaniyê (Ras al-Ain), has been occupied by Turkey and its jihadist allies since October 2019.
Explosions of unexploded ordnance occur repeatedly in the autonomous areas and formerly self-governing regions of northern and eastern Syria. Whole swaths of land are de facto contaminated. In addition, there are deadly legacies of the ISIS, for example in the canton of Shehba.
