You won’t be hearing any of this in the western news media because the U.S./UK definitely want to keep the lid on this report. Compiled by Chinese intelligence analysts and explained below by Evgeniy Satanovskiy, one of Russia’s leading Middle East experts, it throws a new light on the situation in Syria and, indirectly, the Skripals poisoning too.
According to the Chinese analysts hundreds of U.S. Special Forces and advisors were killed or wounded in East Ghouta during the recent Syrian Arab Army assault. On March 17 alone Chinese analysts estimate that as many as 200 U.S. Special Forces personnel were “eliminated”.
The U.S. Special Forces and advisors had been working with the militants in an effort to oust President Assad and counter growing Iranian influence in the region. The loss of so many of their U.S. “advisors” is thought to have adversely affected the militant’s morale.
In addition 200 British Special Air Service members and military advisors were trapped in the militant’s enclave as the Syrian Arab Army, supported by Russian Special Forces and air power, closed in.

In an effort to avoid capture, many reportedly tried to slip through Syrian Arab Army lines dressed as Muslim women in veils and traditional Paranja.
Iran’s Fars News reported that some British Special Forces members were captured in Eastern Ghouta, but as one would expect Britain’s Ministry of Defence has denied those reports.
To distract attention from this military debacle the British launched an assassination attempt against the Skripals in Salisbury.
We’ll reserve judgement on whether the assassination attempt was real or staged. Because whether it was or not, the overriding objective behind the ensuing media campaign was to smear the Russians and distract attention from the unfolding western military disaster in East Ghouta.
Hence the saturation media coverage and the resounding condemnations of Russia from all quarters before a proper investigation into the Skripals poisoning had even commenced. Ed
