News about the violation of airspace in the Taiwan Strait from the Chinese Air Force. Last Minute WORLD headlines and events


Taiwanese officials said 71 Chinese air force vehicles, including fighter jets and drones, have entered Taiwanese airspace in the past 24 hours. The statement stated that today’s situation is the most massive violation ever to take place.

Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense said 43 aircraft also crossed a line in the middle of the Taiwan Strait, which forms an unofficial buffer in the defense zone between the two sides.

The White House expressed concern about the US military actions near Taiwan, saying that they are “provocative” and “destabilizing” in nature and could lead to miscalculations and undermine regional stability.

Taiwan’s official Central News Agency said it was China’s biggest aviation violation to date. Chinese military pressure has increased near Taiwan in recent years.

In declaring Taiwan its territory, China said yesterday that it was conducting offensive exercises in the airspace and waters around Taiwan in response to provocations from the island and the United States.

Taiwan, which denies China’s claim to sovereignty, says the exercises show Beijing is undermining regional peace and trying to intimidate the Taiwanese people.

“China responds to US Defense Authorization Act”

A senior Taiwanese official told Reuters that China is believed to be demonstrating a military provocation amid anger over a recently passed US defense mandate law that has bolstered military support for Taiwan.

An official who wished to remain anonymous said that during the exercise, Chinese strike aircraft simulated an attack by Taiwanese and US warships from various points.

China’s Taiwan Liaison Office did not respond to Reuters’ request for comment.

Tsai will hold a high-level national security meeting tomorrow morning to discuss strengthening the island’s civil defense system, Taiwan’s presidential office, Tsai Ing-wen, said. These civil defense measures will be announced at a press conference to be held later.

As the war in Ukraine continues and Chinese military pressure continues, Taiwan’s defense ministry said it was considering extending the 4-month mandatory military service.

“The better we prepare, the less likely there is to be a surprise attack. The more united we are, the stronger we will be, and Taiwan will become a safer place,” Tsai said at a military ceremony today.

US: “We will continue to support Taiwan”

“Until it develops its ability to defend itself properly, we will continue to support Taiwan in accordance with our long-term commitment and China policy,” the White House National Security Council said.

A large number of Chinese aircraft, including fighter jets, briefly crossed the center line in the sensitive Taiwan Strait and returned to China as a result of the latest violation, according to map images provided by the Taiwan Ministry of Defense. According to the ministry, seven Chinese Navy ships were also spotted near Taiwan.

According to a Taiwan Defense Ministry report showing China’s activities near Taiwan over the past 24 hours, the Chinese army has also sent early warning, electronic warfare and anti-submarine vehicles, as well as drones, to Taiwan’s southern defense zone.

Taiwan complains that over the past two years, the activity of the Chinese air force has increased, especially in the defensive zone in the south.

Taiwan has also deployed an unidentified combat vehicle to the region to defend against Chinese aircraft, according to Taiwan’s defense ministry. Missile systems followed the Chinese aircraft.

In recent years, China has stepped up diplomatic, military and economic pressure on Taiwan, which it wants to dominate. The Taiwanese government says it wants peace but will defend itself if attacked.
