China to join Russia in Syria war

While Russia successfully bombs unidentified targets – either ISIS or U.S.-trained rebels – in Syria, China is planning to join Russia’s own emerging coalition by deploying Shenyang J-15, a carrier-based fighter aircraft.

Numerous reports have indicated that China is joining Russia’s airstrike campaign in Syria, which has killed at least 39 civilians, including eight children and eight women.

The Shenyang J-15 warplanes “will take off from the Chinese Liaoning-CV-16 aircraft carrier, which reached Syrian shores on 26 September,” according to the Israeli military and intelligence news website DEBKAfile with news that Beijing is joining Moscow’s venture in Syria.

It has been reported that the Russians have managed to negotiate with the Syrian government to provide them an exclusive access to some of the largest oil and gas fields in the region in return for the Russian airstrikes.
