A mine is a munition designed to be placed under, on or near the ground or other surface area and to be exploded by the presence, proximity or contact of a person or vehicule and that will incapacitate, injure or kill one or more persons. A mine can remain active for decades after it has been laid. Therefore, even long after a conflict has ended, mines continue to injure and kill posing a major threat to the safety of the population.
These are buried in the ground and triggered by either a tripwire or by stepping on them. Once triggered, they jump into the air and detonate, spreading metal fragments in a 360-degree arc.
