The People's Protection Units YPG neglects all complaints submitted by civilians requesting demining villages and main roads in Makhzom in Abdulaziz in West countryside of Hassaka.
One of the villagers in the area ( Kh. M.) has told NSO reporter that the families have complained to the Abyad checkpoint, that is in charge of the area, several times requesting demining main roads and agricultural field; however, the checkpoint paid no attention to the complaints.
The source explained that more than 7500 mines spread in the area and are all visible declaring that many civilians were killed by dozens of mine explosions. Moreover, these mines deprive hundreds of families from returning home.
Khaled Khaleef, a villager from Abyad has said that the People's Protection Units YPG have demined all their military locations and roads used by the Units by specialists without bothering about the civilians' areas.
"Nofaliye, Tal Baroud, Kherbat Hanash, Talet Qabaseen, Hafayer road, Ein Alhara road" are considered the most areas that still contain active mines. Many civilians have been killed by mines in these areas including Hamadi Hassan Almarbed (15 years old) from Alsarb village, Muhammed Almousa (13 years old ) from Alsarb, Ahmad Alsalman (12 years old) from Ab Alshouk, Saleh Altala'a (29 years old) from Ab Alshouk, Subhi Thyab Alhussieni (35 years old) from Ab Alshouk, and Fawziya Alnoufal (29 years old ) from Alnufaliye.
It is noteworthy to mention that the Syrian Democratic Forces controlled by the People's Protection Units YPG have taken over Abdulaziz Mountain last year on 20/02/2016 after clashes with ISIL supported by the international coalition forces.
