Kobane, Syria –Locals reported on Saturday that a Kurdish woman was reportedly killed after a mine left by the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) exploded in her house in the countryside of Kobane in northern Syria.
Hajera Buzan, 41, returned Friday from the Turkish territory to her house, accompanied by her family, after the joint forces regained control of her village, Dongir, south of Kobane.
“The victim opened the door of her house, and suddenly a mine, most likely planted by IS terrorists, exploded,” media activist Azad Gaban told ARA News in Kobane, pointing out that her husband and son were also wounded in addition to the victim.
“Hagera (victim) lost her life just hours after her injury,” he said.
No information was disclosed about the other two injured family members.
The Islamic State militants withdrew from Kobane and its suburbs after months of battles with the Kurdish defending forces; howerer, civilian returnees continue to encounter danger due to the explosive devices left by the IS extremists inside residential buildings.
Noteworthy, many civilians have lost their lives due to the explosion of mines and bombs left by the Islamic State during the battles of Kobane and its countryside.
