Set to explode: Mines, booby-traps and explosives block the way home

As the frontlines shift in northern Syria, people fleeing their homes or returning to villages vacated by Islamic State (IS) fighters find a deadly landscape littered with mines, booby-traps and unexploded ordnance. Hundreds of people have been killed or maimed by devices planted in roads, fields and houses, says MSF’s new report “Set to explode”, based on the testimonies of MSF medical teams, patients and their families  in northern Syria.
