Maj. Gen. Abdul Azia Jassem al-Shallal is the highest-ranking officer to abandon President Bashar al-Assad.
This man was probably looking at war crimes charges if he stayed on this sinking ship to the end.  There have been numerous reports of abuses by people who worked for him.  I suspect he is hoping to trade information in hopes of saving his own life rather than suffering what his people have imposed on others.

He my have some information of value if he can point out areas of weakness that may not be apparent from regular intelligence.
