Some 1,000 Chinesejihadists are receiving military training in Pakistan, while other Chinese nationals are fighting inside Syria, Col. (ret.) Dr. Jacques Neriah told a high-level delegation from China at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
The Chinese delegation included several participants from the Central Party School (CPS) of the Communist Party’s central committee, which has served as a training ground for China’s top leadership, including its president, Xi Jinping.
Israel has “a great deal of knowledge about the spread of jihadistorganizations,” said Jerusalem Center head Dore Gold, who noted that Israel and China have “shared strategic foreign policy interests” – among the most important being counter-terrorism.
