China's Peacekeeping Battalion in South Sudan

The Global Times published on 8 September 2016 an article titled "Chinese Combat Troops Face Gunfire, Diseases in UN Deployment in South Sudan" by Yao Jianing.

This account is the most detailed I have seen on the composition, purpose and problems faced by China's 700-person combat battalion assigned to the UNMISS peacekeeping operation in South Sudan.
