At least two children have died and three others sustained injuries after a mine explosion in Syria’s central province of Homs on Wednesday evening.

Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that the incident happened in the area of Housh Hajou in the northern parts of the province.

It also said that the wounded had been rushed to al-Bassel Hospital in Karm al-Louz to receive due medical care, adding that some of the wounded children were in critical condition.

According to Doctor Naser Edris, the director of the hospital, the two children lost their lives because of severe wounds caused by shrapnel, which also inflicted injuries on the other three.

The report added that foreign-backed terrorists, ahead of their defeat in the region, had planted mines and explosive devices in rural areas surrounding residential neighbourhoods to target civilians.

Last week, at least five people were killed after terrorists from to the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group detonated an explosive-rigged vehicle in the vicinity of a telecommunication centre in the Kurdish-held town of al-Qahtaniya in the northeastern province of Hasakah.
