He said two cases were related to the anti-tank mine blowing up.

“In the first seven months of 2022, 35 people got injured, three were killed, two of whom – from cluster munitions. Between November 10, 2020, and August 1, 2022, 102 civilians suffered, 32 people were killed, and 70 were injured," Safikhanov said.

He noted despite regular appeals from public agencies and civil society institutions, illegal visits to the liberated territories still take place, which poses a mine threat to their lives.
