Is this the same plant as in your other post? Looks more like a fig (ficus ssp) to me

This one looks like a different plant, and I don't think this one is an Ilex.

another photo?

Can you post a photo of the entire plant?

Likely Chinese privet; if it is the same plant as the other picture (which doesn't have holly in the title), then it is privet.

As suggested in the other post, I guess this could be Forestiera ligustrina after all. Those wispy appendages at the end of the fruit are noticeable.
