More than 2,600 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli landmines in the past 40 years.

This is no surprise considering that more than a million mines remain active. They are scattered along Israel’s borders with Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt.

Israel has always refused to remove them, but now an 11-year-old Israeli boy is campaigning to have them cleared.

Al Jazeera’s Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports.
