Chinese? Chinese military in Syria? Chinese?
Could it be so? Sounds almost preposterous!
Still more a response to the challenge as posted by the Colonel USMC.
PLA = Peoples Liberation Army.
That aspect of the Syrian Civil War the presence of so many foreign interventionists and proxies of foreign interventionists.
Potentially add the Chinese military [PLA] to that long list of foreign interventionists. Chinese their concern the TIP [Turkistan Islamic Party]. Chinese nationals, ethnic Uighur. TIP as deemed a TERRORIST organization.
See previous blog entries regarding same:
"Thousands of Chinese elite troops head to Syria to combat Uighur Islamists"
"Chinese Ambassador To Syria: We Are Willing To Participate 'In Some Way' In The Battle For Idlib Alongside The Assad Army"
"China to join Idlib offensive, took part in Russian Mediterranean drill"
NO CHINESE DEPLOYMENT OF MILITARY FORCES BEYOND THE CHINESE BORDERS [EXCEPTION KOREA] IN SIX HUNDRED YEARS. SUCH AN EXPEDITIONARY FORCE ALLOW THE CHINESE TO DEMONSTRATE GLOBAL REACH AND ALLOW THEIR MILITARY TO GAIN VALUABLE COMBAT EXPERIENCE.
