Tension escalates as more Chinese military aircraft enter Taiwan's air defence zone

BY ANI, Aug 4, 2022 4:22 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

As the tensions escalated in the Taiwan strait in the wake of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, the Taiwanese Defence Ministry said that 22 Chinese military aircraft entered the island's air defence zone on Thursday.

This is the third such incident since Pelosi's trip to Taipei.

"22 PLA aircraft (J-11*8, SU-30*12 and J-16*2) entered the surrounding area of R.O.C. on August 4, 2022," Taiwan Defence Ministry said in a statement.

Taiwan today strongly condemned China's "North Korea" style missile firing into waters near the self-governed island after China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) launched multiple Dongfeng (DF) ballistic missiles at the island's Northeast and Southwest waters. "

On August 4, China launched multiple ballistic missiles into waters to the northeast and southwest of Taiwan, threatening Taiwan's national security, escalating regional tensions, and affecting regular international traffic and trade," the Taiwan foreign ministry said in a statement.

The Taiwan government has urged the international community to condemn China's military coercion toward Taiwan.
