According to Syrian media reports on the 24th, a mine explosion occurred in the Saramyre area of Hama province in central Syria, killing more than 20 people.
The Syrian News Agency quoted local police sources as saying that the mine was an extremist organization. The Islamic State militants had previously laid it, and a car carrying several workers exploded as it drove past. The remains of the victims have been taken to the local hospital.
It is reported that these workers are engaged in the collection of edible fungi. At the time of the local edible fungus collection season, many people went to areas previously controlled by the Islamic State to collect edible fungi. In early February, two mine explosions occurred in the Salamiye area of Hama province, causing many deaths and injuries.
