China has warned of “terrorist organisations” including remnants of Daesh* rising again in Syria if the international community ignores the “early warning” signs.

Xie Xiaoyan, Beijing’s envoy in Syrian, said: “There is now a danger of terrorist organisations like ISIS (Daesh) being revived. The international community should pay attention.”

He was meeting in Geneva with the United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, Geir Pedersen.​After the so-called Arab Spring, rebels challenged the government of President Assad in 2011 and three years later Daesh, an extremist Sunni Muslim militia, overran a huge chunk of eastern Syria and northern Iraq and proclaimed a “caliphate.”

Eventually Daesh was forced to retreat and in March this year it relinquished its last stronghold, Baghouz, to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF).

The focus has now turned to Idlib, which since January has been administered by the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham alliance, led by jihadists from Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate.​The UN has warned President Assad and his Russian allies an assault on Idlib could trigger a humanitarian catastrophe.

Tens of thousands of Daesh fighters who fled the region around Raqqa last year are believed to have infiltrated Idlib and are preparing for a last stand against the Syrian Army.

Mr Xie said the situation in Idlib was “very complicated”.

​He said: “We all know that this is the last stronghold of some of the terrorist organisations… so this is an issue that needs to be dealt with. The fight against terrorism is not finished yet.”

Is this chinas announcement of its intent to enter the fray?? Surely they could do with trying out some of their systems in live arena? And if they want some of that reconstruction pie they should get in there sharpish because russia and iran are already at the table! Iraq is also coming out strong on the side of righteousness too so maybe looking for a little bite itself?!

China covers the büt of Pakistan which is one of the 4 main states sponsoring jihadists with Turkey, Qatar and Iran.
Never questionned yourself how ISIS ended with Chinese 120mm mortars while nobody uses these in the MENA? Or why al-Qaeda never did a single attack on Iran? Or why Zarqawi (ISIS founder) hid in Iran before being smuggled into Iraq by IRGC?
Never head about the infamous colonel James E. Steele training Iran-funded Shia death-squads in Iraq?
Or about Hamza bin-Laden getting married in Iran?

I always like it when some ‘commenters’ come on here and try to spread Zionist BS lies. One, in particular is a regular, who thinks he is an instigator but is in reality a mere comedian. Such as trying to assert a certain Shia leader and his group, who is unfriendly to Iran and not supported by them at all as Iranian backed. What a laugh. The death squads were created and are run and fully supported by the US/Israel…seeking to create civil division. The next line of manure is about Chinese weapons…and who would be supplying these but Israel?… Read more »

Uyghurs arrived from Central Asia in the 10th century and are of Turkish descent. “Uyghur” was first used officially in & around 1930s over the generic “Turkic”. These Turkic Moslems settled in the Chinese province of Xinjiang. In fact for many decades China did give more preferential treatment to keep these people happy & did not even impose the 1 child policy on these people. But then when you give preferential treatment to one ethnic people the natives will obviously get pi*sed off. Now can you see how these migrating Moslems can become a pain in your *%$# once they… Read more »

Vietnam veteran Battle hardened Sylvester Stallone could do a lot in Hollywood movie Rambo!! His Commanding Officer casually said “He is a killing Machine, he is trained to survive & kill”. Well after seeing the movie everyone said wow, in real life there is no wow factor when such trained killing machines come to your own country too.

+++ ” Hayat Tahrir al-Sham alliance, led by jihadists from Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate”
=> Don’t forget that HTS = al-Nusra.
Al-Nusra was initially the Syrian branch of ISIS, then, when Baghdadi decided to personally micro-manage the Syrian branch, al-Julani refused and swore alegiance to Qaeda.
ISIS is also a split-off from a-Qaeda.
In fact, it’s high time for all to understand that there is a single jihad, not multiple groups and even the Shia Islamists are part of it while the non-violent ones into “political Islam” are into funding it from the backstage.
