MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th August, 2019) At least two children were killed and three people were injured in a mine blast in the western Syrian province of Homs, local media reported on Wednesday.
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 organizations. 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.
