DAMASCUS, July 11 (Xinhua) -- The bodies of 16 Palestinian soldiers have been found tossed in an area between the Syrian northern provinces of Aleppo and Idlib, media reports said Wednesday.
The killed Palestinians were conscripts in the Syrian-based Palestinian Army of Liberation.
The details surrounding the carnage remain unclear due to lack of official comments. However, initial speculations indicate that the 16 young men had been ambushed en route to the Nairab Palestinian camp in Aleppo.
Ambush against army men is becoming a common approach used by armed rebels in the country. However, the Palestinian army has largely stayed away and took no part in the Syrian military operations.
A photo was posted online showing the bodies of the deceased socked in their own blood.
The Syrian crisis has grown more militarized in spite of the international efforts to solve the 16-months unrest politically.
