A shepherd was injured in a mine explosion on October 28, local sources told Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN).

Arastoo Nik Bin, 29 years old Kurdish citizen from the village of Ishaqabad in Saqqez, was taken to a hospital in Saqqez after a mine explosion. He has reportedly lost one leg due to serious injuries.

The mines left over from the Iran-Iraq war claim the life of dozens of victims in the Kurdistan region of Iran annually.
