SHORT THREAD: #SkripalCase & #Syria: 1.#Russia's authoritative,yet controversial #MiddleEadt expert Satanovsky known for his ties to #FSB sec service says "#UK's persecution of Russia" has to do w/ serious,underreported development in #Syria that occured shortly before #Salisbury
2.According to him,during operations in #EasternGhouta "actions by #SAA's special force unit (supported by #Russia/ns) led to a group of #UK's special forces ending up trapped in a siege,allegedly near Kafr Batna settlement.
3.The incident occurred few days after another unit of #UK's special forces was captured near Nashabiyah in #EasternGhouta.#London allegedly sought to negotiate their release w/ #Russia via #Oman as a mediator.#Moscow replied it was the jurisdiction of #Syria/n mil authorities.
4.#US Defense Secretary Mattis visit to #Oman on Mar 11. is believed to serve, among other reasons, the purpose of releasing an American officer & two Israelies also allegedly captured in the same episode in #EasternGhouta.
4. It's thus argued #UK as well as some in #US gov (deep state?) realized risks rising in #Syria & since #Russia won't be pushed to the sideline military pressure on other fronts (political, diplomatic, info, sanctions) had to be increased to raise stakes for #Moscow.
5.Satanovsky statements shld always be taken w/ a grain of salt.Yet given his ties to Rus sec services,he occasionally used for "infoleaks" meant to signal certain position within Rus "siloviki" establishment. So even of this isnt entirely accurate it's worth paying attention to
