Unexploded Cluster Bombs Pose Threat to Aleppo Residents

Civil Defense warns Aleppo residents of the dangers of unexploded munitions as teams scan neighborhoods of al-Harablah, Karm at-Toub and al-Marjah

Civil Defense and the forensic Free Police units in Aleppo on Monday scanned the neighborhoods of al-Harablah, Karm at-Toub and al-Marjah in an attempt to locate the large number of unexploded cluster bombs.

The forensic police team, headed by explosives expert Amer Abu Islam, managed to dismantle some of the bombs, and moved others to their laboratory to dismantle them there,  according to team leader Abu Jaafar Kahil.

The team posted footage explaining the seriousness of cluster bombs and the quantity of highly explosive materials within them, while Abu Jaafar said that the unexploded munitions pose a threat comparable to that of landmines.

Abu Jaafar warned local citizens to avoid approaching the bomb remnants, requesting that civilians inform police and Civil Defense teams if they discover munitions or any other foreign objects.
