He's talking about Samaritans, an Israelite population closely related, but distinct from Judaism (think: the Parable of the Good Samaritan, in the Gospel of Luke). According to tradition, they are descendants of the Northern Israelite Tribes who were not deported when the Assyrians conquered Israel in the 8th century BC. I think you mixed them up with Sarmatians, a nomadic confederation of the Eurasian Steppe. Samaritans in Israel form a tiny minority today (less than 1000 people), but were once quite an important regional population, often ruled by the greater powers of the day (Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Seleucids, Romans, Arabs, Ottomans, British, Israelis). Apparently many of the Muslim Palestinian people of Nablus are originally of Samaritan descent.
