No, the Chinese are not planning to enter Syria militarily at this time

The first time it was floated that China was definitely going to send its military to fight IS, etc., in Syria, I literally laughed it off and did so in public on the Internet. The second time it was floated, I didn't laugh it off but made clear to people that the situation had changed and that it wasn't possible to rule out the Chinese actually joining the fray. I said it was low probability at the time but should not be summarily dismissed, as it could be earlier. So now it's been claimed again. This time, I don't have to say one way or the other because the Chinese have made their current position quite clear if this news report can be trusted (and I have no reason right now to not do so).

The Chinese are not entering Syria militarily at this time.
