A civilian from the Kuran village of Orumiyeh, West Azerbaijan province, named Maryam Azizvand, who was injured in a landmine explosion in the past few days, has been taken to a hospital in Tabriz, East Azerbaijan province, due to the severity of her injuries.

Azizvand’s child Ronahi Khodaei was also injured during the explosion.

On 12 July, the 10-year-old Khodaei found a landmine while playing near the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) base in the village.

Not knowing that the found object was a mine, the child intended to sell it as iron.

Moments after Azizvand noticed that her child had brought a landmine home, the mine suddenly exploded and injured the two civilians.

Azizvand and her child Khodaei, who were seriously injured by the explosion, were first taken to a medical centre in Orumiyeh.
