Executed Bodies of 68 Men and Teen Boys Found In River In Syria, Toll Could Reach 100

A grim discovery in Syria's city of Aleppo where, so far, 68 bodies of men and teenage boys have been pulled from the river there, all executed with a single shot to the back of the head or neck...and it appears that the final tally of dead bodies may reach 100.

Like we have said here before...Bashir Assad doesn't mess around but hey, don't forget that it's the Israelis in the Middle East who are the bad guys.

The story comes from DAWN.

Bodies of 68 executed young men, boys found in Syria

ALEPPO: The bodies of at least 68 young men and boys, all executed with a single gunshot to the head or neck, were found on Tuesday in a river in the Syrian city of Aleppo, a watchdog and rebels said.

A Free Syrian Army captain at the scene said at least 68 bodies had been found and that many more were still being dragged from the water, in a rebel-held area.

The bodies were found in the Quweiq River, which separates the Bustan al-Qasr district from Ansari in the southwest of the city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

“Until now we have recovered 68 bodies, some of them just teens,” said Captain Abu Sada, adding that all of them had been “executed by the regime.”

“But there must be more than 100. There are still many in the water, and we are trying to recover them,” he added.

A volunteer said as he helped load one of the bodies on a truck: “We don’t know who they are because there was no ID on them”.

At least 15 bodies could already be seen on the truck, with others continuing to arrive.

Abu Sada said they would be taken to the hospital at Zarzur where relatives could seek to identify them.

“Those who are not identified will be buried in a common grave,” he added.
