BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – Earlier this week, reports began to surface about the alleged deployment of the Chinese Special Forces to Syria.
According to the reports, the Chinese Special Forces were going to be deployed to Syria to help defeat the estimated 2,500 Uyghur separatists currently fighting near the Turkish border.
On Thursday, Al-Masdar reached out to a military source in Damascus to confirm whether or not these reports were accurate.
The source in Damascus stated that the Syrian Army has not received any information about the alleged deployment of Chinese troops to Syria.
He added that the Syrian Army has no reason to believe Chinese troops are deploying to Syria at this time.
