China launches its largest incursion into Taiwan’s air defence zone

According to the Taiwanese government, China launched its largest ever incursion into Taiwan’s air defense zone.

In the last 24 hours, more than 70 Chinese aircraft including drones and fighter jets entered the zone. 43 of them briefly crossed Taiwan Strait’s median.

Although the median line is not officially recognized by Beijing, it serves as a buffer between them.

The defence ministry of China said that seven Chinese navy ships were also found near Taiwan.


Shi Yi, spokesperson for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Eastern Theatre Command stated: “This is an aggressive response to the current US Taiwan escalation.

Shi was referring to the US defense spending bill. It described China and approved more security cooperation.

According to Taiwan’s defense ministry, combat aircraft were sent by the Taiwanese to deter Chinese planes. Missile systems also monitored the situation.

China claims that democratic Taiwan must be returned to China. It has been harassing the island more frequently in recent years and regularly sends planes and ships towards it.
