A boy from the Ain Zara district has succumbed to wounds he sustained from a landmine explosion three weeks ago, the spokesman for the Emergency and Ambulance Service, Osama Ali, has confirmed.
In a statement to the Libya Observer, Ali indicated that the boy, identified as Rahil Nuri Bani, was injured along with another child in a mine explosion in mid-October, pointing out that the other victim is still receiving treatment in the hospital.
Since the defeat of Khalifa Haftar's forces in the western region, landmines planted by his militias and Russian mercenaries still lay heavily on the residents' lives.
Last week, the Ambulance and Emergency services reported that two people died and another suffered injuries due to a landmine explosion near Mizdah town south of Tripoli.
In early October, the Emergency Medicine and Support Center in Tripoli also confirmed the death of one person and the injury of two others -one of the wounded underwent an amputation to both feet- because of a mine explosion in the Al-Kahili area of Ain Zara.
