Kidnapped Iranians in exchange for the 49 arrested Turkish intel officers in Syria
News reports circulated by Aljazzera said that the Free Syrian Army kidnapped Iranians in Syria (Iran and Syria say that the kidnapped are engineers). Later the so called “Free Syrian Army” denied the report
News reported on Turkish newspaper Aydinlikgazete from few days revealed that the Syrian military arrested 49 Turkish intelligence officers (State intel. not a military intel.) in Syria.
The suggested scenario is the following:
The Iranian engineers are kidnapped in Syria, transferred to turkey to be used as a bargain with Iran in exchange for the Turkish Intel. Officers in Syria.
