A 10-year-old boy has died after a remnant of war exploded on a farm in Qasr Bin Ghashir south of Tripoli.

The Security Directorate of the Four Districts said it received a call on Monday reporting the sound of an explosion in the area.

The blast killed 10-year-old Abdul Moez Masoud Al-Tir Oqab from the Radd Al-Zawiya neighbourhood near Al-Ittihad Company.

The authority said investigations into the cause of the blast are ongoing.

A report by Human Rights Watch in April last year confirmed the death of at least 130 people, mostly civilians, due to landmines and unexploded ordnance left over from heavy fighting in 2020.
