In June 2021, the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) expressed its concerns over the death of children in a landmine explosion in South Waziristan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
It said that “No child should fall victim to landmines or explosive remnants of war. UNICEF will continue to support the Government of Pakistan in mine risk education to raise awareness on the risks posed by landmines and explosives among children and families living in crisis-affected areas. It is equally important to continue clearing minefields and to rehabilitate and reintegrate those who have survived accidents.
