Aleppo [Syria]: At least two children were killed and five others suffered injuries in a landmine blast in Syria’s government-held Aleppo city on Friday (local time).

“The victims had found a landmine left behind by terrorists in the 1070 Apartments project at the western outskirts of Aleppo city, and they transported the landmine to the third neighbourhood in al-Hamadaniya area where it went off while they were tampering with it, killing two children and injuring five others,” said the source.
