Did the Chinese catch the US military stealing humanitarian tents China donated to Syria?!
Take a look at the viral photo, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : US Military Was Caught Stealing Tents From China!
People are sharing a photo of a US soldier carrying a white humanitarian tent, claiming that it is evidence the US military stole it from China, just like how it stole oil from Syria!
Even Iranian state media, Press TV, posted the same photo, and claim:

Truth : US Military Was NOT Caught Stealing Tents From China!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and spread by pro-CCP netizens and groups.
Fact #1 : Viral Photo Was Taken In Turkey
First, let me just point out that the viral photo was actually posted by the US Army’s official Instagram account on March 8, 2023. It was also taken in Turkey, not Syria, as alleged.
Fact #2 : US Soldier Was Delivering Aid In Turkey
The claim that the US military was using tents from China is nonsense.
The soldier was carrying the humanitarian tent to aid people affected by the earthquake in Turkey. This was clearly explained in the caption of the photo:
Fact #3 : Tent Was Likely Donated By China
Despite counter-claims that the tent was donated by Taiwan, the tent carried by the US soldier appears to be donated by China to help with the humanitarian efforts in Turkey and Syria, following the massive 2023 earthquake.
The tent cover has the printed description in Simplified Chinese (which is used in China, Singapore and Malaysia), instead of Traditional Chinese used in Taiwan:

Fact #4 : US Military Helped To Deliver Aid
While the China sent tons of tents and other supplies to Turkey, it did not have any base or ability to transport those aid to the affected areas. That was left to AFAD – the Turkish relief agency.
That was where the United States military came in – they used their helicopters at the Incirlik Air Base to deliver donated aid to the affected areas that are hard to reach by trucks.
That’s why you see US soldiers taking things on or off helicopters, which may have been donated by other countries. They were not stealing anything, just helping to deliver them.
Fact #5 : US Has Almost Triple Military Budget Of China
Only the most ignorant Chinese or pro-CCP netizen will believe that the US military needs to steal tents donated by China. And of all things – white humanitarian tents…
Anyone who even does a 5 second check would have discovered that the United States has almost triple the military budget of China.
In 2021, the US military budget was $767.8 billion, while China only spent $270 billion on its military. The US military can definitely afford to pay for more tents than the Chinese.
Fact #6 : No Evidence Chinese Convoy Got Hijacked By US Military
There is no evidence that the tent being carried by the soldier was stolen from a Chinese humanitarian convoy in Syria.
There is also no evidence that any Chinese humanitarian convoy was hijacked by the US military. If that actually happened, China would have protested the hijacking publicly, and the news would have been broadcasted by the many press and propaganda outlets controlled by the CCP government.
Naturally, there was nothing of the sorts. But since when have the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), or pro-CCP netizens, ever cared about facts?

This appears to be yet another example of Chinese propaganda created by the infamous Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), or pro-CCP netizens.
