Armenian de-miners who are carrying out humanitarian mine clearance activities in Syria have cleared some 25,290 sq territory in the period from February 19 to May 2.

As the Centre of Humanitarian Demining and Expertise SNCO reports, the Armenian specialists came across anti-tank and other handmade mines many of them improvised. Meanwhile, the Armenian medics of the humanitarian mission performed operations and other medical assistance to hundreds of local residents.

Moreover, clinical. biochemical and laboratory examinations have been conducted. To remind, Armenia dispatched an 83-member team of doctors, sappers, as well as personnel ensuring their safety to Syria to carry out humanitarian mine clearance activities, raise mine awareness among the population and offer medical aid in Aleppo exclusively outside the zone of military operations.

The Armenian government made the decision to provide humanitarian aid to Syria taking into consideration the war-triggered humanitarian crisis in the country and especially in Aleppo, the UN Security Council Resolutions 2393 (2017) and 2401 (2018), a written request from the Syrian side, as well as the existence of a large Armenian community in Aleppo.
