Beijing is deploying to Syria thousands of members of two elite People Liberation Army units to combat extremist Islamic Uighurs fighting in the northern Syrian province of Idlib
Those units are the Chinese Navys Night Tigers and the Shenyang Regions Siberian Tigers.
Beijing accuses Turkeys MIT intelligence of backing the Chinese Islamist separatists.
Examine in depth this extraordinary event which is befalling Syria in the last stages of its civil war.

Right....and they are being joined by a contingent of Martians!
I have yet to hear of a Debka article that has proven to be true. Can you identify one?
Slowly, but surely, the whole world is descending into the Middle East. Hmmm....
looks like the new silk road is a go....
Better Red than Moham-ed...?
If China is going to Syria they are going for one reason and that is to build a unit of troops trained in combat on a modern battlefield.
China hasnt had that in decades since they fought the Vietnamese and got their butts handed to them.
they’ve been right all this year about Isis fleeing into the deserts..
Looks like the Chinese are doing what the Italians did at the end of WWI and joining the war during its final stages on a flimsy pretext in order to gain a small bit of territory and influence for very little cost. Because they have a lot of money, and a powerful economic machine behind them, they are able to make better progress per dollar/pound/euro/shekel/wampum spent and per life lost [not that they ever cared for such things as long as it served the general strategic interest, from the Yellow Emperor until Korea].
This is almost certainly tied into [and likely caused by] the construction of the New Silk Road, which is intended to stretch roughly along the path of the original one. Great strides have been made in the last ten years alone in this regard, and it was a large part of the reason that Xi Jinping was elevated to the status of Mao and Deng Xiaopeng at the Party Congress earlier this year. But there was a problem in the construction how to get to Anatolia or the Caucasus. [I strongly doubt that the second will be the main road, though it will likely become a spur, as the Chinese have not had excellent relations with the Russians for sixty years.] Now that they have a foothold in Syria, the path to the Mediterranean and beyond can be completed. It is a massive political and economic coup now and will be a well-known one when it is finally completed, which at its current pace should be roughly 5-10 years.
Debka? Seriously? News?
What is wrong with people!
If this was true, it would be a first for Debka
Red Dragon of Revelations?
I hope we’ll be watching this very closely. It’s been quite a while since Chinese troops saw combat, and even longer since they were in combat anywhere but on home soil. There are some very important questions that we can start building answers to, depending on what they do in Syria.
Just goes to show just how much the Muslims have a death wish. If they piss off the Chinese, thy are in big trouble. The Chinese out number them by a bunch and the Muslims don’t have enough bullets to stop them. You go China!
It’s in Debka, so it MUST BE TRUE!...................
China needs oil at a low cost. so does India etc
Better Red than BeHead............
