At least seven teenagers killed in Syria landmine blast: media

PanARMENIAN.Net - At least seven teenagers were killed when a landmine set by terrorists exploded in the town of Deblan in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor governorate, the country’s SANA news agency reported.

According to SANA, the incident occurred during agricultural works. It is yet unkown whether anyone else was injured in the blast.

Militants of the Islamic State group, who occupied eastern Syria, left numerous bombs and landmines in rural areas during their retreat, TASS reports.

According to SANA, this was done in a bid to disrupt peaceful life in agricultural regions.

In a similar incident on June 22, two children were injured in a landmine explosion on the southern outskirts of the city of Al Hasakah.
