RED DAWN: Chinese troops to join Russian marines in Syria soon, says report
A report claims that a Chinese naval vessel carrying dozens of “military advisers” is on its way to Syria and the Chinese troops will then join with the “hundreds” of Russian soldiers.
“The Chinese will be arriving in the coming weeks,” a Syrian army official told Lebanon-based news website – Al-Masdar Al-‘Arabi.
The Chinese ship has crossed the Suez Canal in Egypt and is currently in the Mediterranean Sea.
However, according to Israeli military news website – DEBKAfile, the aircraft carrier, Liaoning-CV-16, is already docked at the Syrian port of Tartus, accompanied by a guided missile cruiser.
The Chinese troops are expected to join the Russian forces in the Latakia region, where the Russians are building a massive military base.
