Compare this passage about the Syrian ambush with the fanciful account of Ms. Liz Sly

"In Syria on Wednesday, government forces killed scores of rebels in an ambush east of Damascus, opposition activists and the government said, dealing a major blow to efforts by rebels to open a supply line to a besieged area. The exact toll remained unclear, with the government claiming it had killed more than 175 rebels, many of them non-Syrian jihadists, and an opposition activist in the area saying more than 40 fighters were killed, with dozens more unaccounted for."   Wait. Is it possible that Ms. Sly counted the non-Syrian Jihadists as civilians?
