Recommendations for Action

  • Syria should accede to the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) as a matter of priority.
  • Despite not yet being a state party to the APMBC, Syria has obligations under international human rights law to clear mines in areas under its jurisdiction or control as soon as possible.
  • Syria should establish a mine action authority and facilitate access for international demining organisations to facilitate development of a credible humanitarian demining programme.
  • Syria should initiate a programme of mine survey and clearance as soon as possible and take other measures to reduce the risk to civilians of mines and explosive remnants of war.
