China is doing it again. Taiwan is reporting that China sent 27 Air Defense Planes into Taiwan’s Air Defense Zone.
Newsmax is reporting:
Taiwan’s air force scrambled again on Sunday to warn away 27 Chinese aircraft that entered its air defense zone, Taiwan’s defense ministry said, the latest increase in tensions across the sensitive Taiwan Strait.
Chinese-claimed Taiwan has complained for a year or more of repeated missions by China’s air force near the democratically governed island, often in the southwestern part of its air defense identification zone, or ADIZ, close to the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands.
Over a four-day period beginning on Oct. 1, when China marked its national day, Taiwan said that nearly 150 PLA military aircraft entered its ADIZ, not territorial air space but a broader area Taiwan monitors and patrols that acts to give it more time to respond to any threats.
This is not the first time China has done this. In October Taiwan announced it was preparing for war after the number of threats from China increased.
