In April 2015, Handicap International assessed the damage caused by the fighting in the city of Kobani and the surrounding villages. The team found an appalling illustration of the devastating consequences of the intensive use of explosive weapons in populated areas by all parties in Syria 2: civilians killed and injured, homes and infrastructure destroyed, and populations in danger when trying to settle back and rebuilding their lives.

Hardly ever before have Handicap International teams encountered such a density and diversity of explosive remnants of war contamination3.
