12 children sustained wounds from a landmine laid by radical Islamists from ISIL (organization banned in Russia) in the eastern part of Deir ez-Zor province on October 11th, SANA reports.
According to the agency, the landmine exploded in the village of Saalo. The victims were sent to Al-Assad Hospital located in the city of Deir ez-Zor in northeastern Syria. According to the hospital’s director Galem Batakh, ten injured children are now in a stable condition, and the other two are in critical condition. All the wounded have received medical assistance, and the medical staff are monitoring them.
The Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor is controlled by the Kurds from the Syrian Democratic Forces and ISIL militants (organization banned in Russia). SANA reports that the US-led international coalition has begun evacuating ISIL (organization banned in Russia) leaders from the province of Deir ez-Zor since September.
The government forces have been fighting Islamic radicals in Syria since 2011. Today, the majority of Syria’s territory has been liberated from the militants; the war continues in the provinces of Idlib and Der ez-Zor. Islamist bands are still operating in the regions, but mutual discord and conflicts are weakening them.
