Landmines are considered one of the most horrifying, unethical tactics used in modern wars.
Large minefields is planted with anti-personnel explosives, usually to give a temporary strategic advantage, and get left after wars, ending thousands of innocent civilian lives, and preventing the social and economical development to reach the affected zones.
Egypt considered one of the most affected countries with landmines, with nearly 20% of the total landmines in the world.
"The northwest coast has great development potential; the area is one of the greatest promises for Egypt. But the mines deny access to a landmass of approximately 22 percent of the national territory," El-Shazly* said.
