Local officials in Paktia province report the tragic loss of two children and injuries to four others due to an explosion of a landmine in the Hesarak district of Paktia province.

According to reports from Paktia province officials, the incident occurred on Sunday, in the Khilzi Khalil area of the district.

Based on reports, the incident occurred precisely when the landmine exploded, resulting in the loss of two children’s lives and injuries to four others.

Additionally, provincial authorities have stated that all the victims of this incident belong to a single family.

Similar incidents of casualties, especially among children, have been reported in various provinces, particularly Paktia, due to leftover mines from previous wars.

This comes as the United Nations Mine Action Coordination Office (UNMACC) had previously announced that Afghanistan is one of the most heavily mined and explosive-contaminated countries in the world.

Efforts to clear mines and unexploded ordnance remain crucial to prevent further tragic incidents in Afghanistan’s conflict-affected regions.
