The mess in Syria is going to increase quite soon. The Chinese government decided to sent its troops in Syria to fight along with Al-Assad’s forces. The move comes as China becomes more concerned about the presence of Islamic militants in the East Turkestan region. The Uyghurs, an ethnic group also known as Chinese Muslim fighters, are frequently blamed for terrorist activity in their own country.
The Chinese government will send on the territory two special units: the “Tigers of Siberia” and the “Night Tigers”. Those troops will be responsible of killing the Uyghur fighters.
The Chinese militias will also support the Assad regime in the fight against the Islamic terrorist group known as ISIL/ISIS (Islamic State).
This is not the first time that Beijing decided to send its troops on the Syrian front. In 2015 5.000 soldiers entered the Syrian territory and stationed in the Western region of Latakia.
The move has been seen by some analysts as part of an agenda to increase China’s authority on the international scene. In early November, China tested the Dongfeng-41, Beijing’s next-gen Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM).
