Riyadh, During the fourth week of June 2019, the Riyadh-based King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief)'s project for clearing landmines (MASAM) in Yemen was able to dismantle 604 mines, including four anti-personnel mines, 268 anti-tank mines, 330 unexploded ordnance, and two explosive devices.
