BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 A.M) – A group of Chinese soldiers arrived in Venezuela on Sunday as part of a cooperation program between Beijing and Caracas.

According to reports, more than 120 soldiers from the Chinese People’s Liberation Army arrived at Venezuela’s Margarita Island to deliver humanitarian aid and military supplies to the government forces.

The arrival of the People’s Liberation Army in Venezuela comes just days after the Russian armed forces deployed to the country to install a military helicopter training facility.

However, this move by the Russian military has not come without heavy criticism from the Trump administration and several U.S. congressmen.

“Maduro calls for hands off #Venezuela while he invites security forces from Cuba and Russia, so he and his cronies can keep plundering Venezuela. It is time for Venezuelan institutions to stand for their sovereignty. Russia and Cuba, #HandsOffVenezuela,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted on March 28th.

These moves by the Russian and Chinese armed forces appear to be a powerplay against the U.S. administration, who is actively pushing to remove Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power.

The U.S. has attempted to deliver humanitarian aid to Venezuela from Colombia; however, the Maduro administration contends that the purpose of these deliveries is to transport weapons to the opposition.

This isnt about israel! We already know the sickness they spread,this is about Venezuela,another country in the sights of the hawks that your beloved israel depends on to protect it from the annihilation it would suffer for the crimes it commits on those innocent women and children it sees as less than human,its just so strange how a country of “victims” can itself inflict this h**l on other human beings?

Chinese soldiers without help from their mainland cannot challenge the mighty US military. They are there only as symbolic support for Maduro. But a flotilla of nuke armed Chinese vessels will be respected, they are not needed at the present moment.

Another sensational news. No such 120 PLA troops arrived at Venezuela to assist Maduro. As for those PLA soldiers posing together with Venezuelan forces, they were merely military envoys sent for delivering humanitarian aid. No weapons are being supplied. Here is Chinese official response to the rumors: https://www.fmprc.gov.cn/mfa_eng/xwfw_665399/s2510_665401/t1651102.shtml Al-Masdar reporters, I would strongly remind you all to do a big favour check and confirm STRICTLY from Chinese sources next time before publishing such news like this, or get someone who can speak Mandarin Chinese like me. I notice you also posted similar fake stories regarding “Chinese troops in Syria” many… Read more »

They’re calling Trump’s bluff, simple as that. Next step, put Guaido in jail. If Trump does nothing then he pretty much loses the re-election and gets shamed as one of the most useless POTUS in recent history.
