The Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning-CV-16 has reportedly docked at the Syrian port of Tartus, according to DEBKAfile, an Israeli military intelligence website based in Jerusalem.
Much of DEBKAfile’s reportage is based on unidentified sources and cannot be independently verified.
The aircraft carrier was said to be accompanied by a guided missile cruiser.
Al-Masdar Al-‘Arabi, The Arab Source, claimed on Tuesday a Chinese naval vessel passed through the Suez Canal.
“Our military sources find evidence that the Chinese forces are digging in for a prolonged stay in Syria. The carrier put into Tartus minus its aircraft contingent. The warplanes and helicopters should be in place on its decks by mid-November – flying in directly from China via Iran or transported by giant Russian transports from China through Iranian and Iraqi airspace,” the unidentified sources told DEBKAfile.
A squadron of J-15 Flying Shark fighters will be stationed on the aircraft carrier and at the Russian base outside of Latakia.
