Explosives in Somalia injured or killed 1,200 people last year

Making a statement on the occasion of World Mine Awareness and Support for Mine Action Day, the UN Somalia Support Mission emphasized that they are determined to eliminate the explosive threat in Somalia.

“In 2022, at least 1,200 Somalis were killed or injured by improvised explosive devices, remnants of war and landmines,” the statement said.

Anita Kiki Gbeho, Deputy Representative of UN Secretary General for Somalia, stated that the price paid by Somalis for explosives is very high and emphasized that explosive material pollution hinders the delivery of humanitarian aid along with economic development.

Due to the civil war that broke out in the country in the early 1990s and the attacks of the terrorist organization Al-Shabab, there are mines and explosive residues in many areas.
