Interesting story coming from Business Inside.
Chinese military vehicles have gathered in Shenzhen, a city located just 25 kilometers (15 miles) from the adjacent Hong Kong border — a warning sign from China in response to over 10 weeks of escalating protests in Hong Kong.
Several videos posted to social media show a long procession of military trucks entering Shenzhen on Monday morning. Chinese state tabloid Global Times posted a compilation of different footage showing the military trucks assembling in Shenzhen “in advance of apparent large-scale exercises.”
The propaganda video shows a number of armored personnel carriers, trucks, and other vehicles belonging to the Chinese People’s Armed Police Force, a paramilitary police force responsible for riot control and counter-terrorism, parading through the streets of Shenzhen.
The Times also noted in its report that 12,000 police officers, tanks, helicopters, and amphibious vehicles gathered in Shenzhen on August 6 for what appeared to be anti-riot drills.
