SANA's reporter said no Syrian army forces were present in the area.
Syrian authorities earlier erected barbed wire along the river. It was done to prevent terrorist infiltration. It didn't help.
"The bodies, which terrorists and TV misleading channels have claimed that the army killed their owners, were found in the side where terrorists present"if they were killed in the safe areas, their bodies would stick to the barbed wires before reaching the region where they were discovered."
Whether on not Washington plans direct intervention remains to be seen. Last weekend, Obama said:
"In a situation like Syria, I have to ask, can we make a difference in that situation? Would a military intervention have an impact?"
"How would it affect our ability to support troops who are still in Afghanistan? What would be the aftermath of our involvement on the ground?"
"Could it trigger even worse violence or the use of chemical weapons? What offers the best prospect of a stable post-Assad regime?"
A Washington Post editorial responded. It headlined "Consequences of US inaction in Syria are clear," saying:
"The logic at work here - the longer the Assad regime holds on, the worse the consequences - was acknowledged by senior Obama administration officials nearly a year ago."
At his confirmation hearing, John Kerry said "Every day that goes by, it gets worse." According to French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius:
"If we don't give the means to the Syrian people to go achieve their freedom, there is a risk".that massacres and antagonisms amplify, and that extremism and terrorism prevail."
Obama so far stopped short of direct intervention. "In the absence of US action, the violence (increases) and the Assad regime move(s) dangerously close to using chemical arms."
Unconfirmed documents and reports suggest Washington approved a Qatar-funded chemical weapons false flag. Initiating ot would falsely blame Assad.
Russia also for supporting a government Washington wants toppled. False flags are an American tradition. Their origins go back generations.
