Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense denounced this Saturday that ten Chinese regime fighter jets temporarily crossed his security line within a new series of approximations that the island authorities denounce as a pressure maneuverpart of Beijing’s sovereign ambitions over the area.
On its Twitter account, the Taiwanese Ministry identified 18 fighter jets and four ships of the Chinese Navy around 06:00 local time. A dozen aircraft passed through the call “Davis line” which marks half of Taiwan Strait, before turning around.
As has happened on so many other occasions, the Taiwanese forces activated a provisional alert among their air and sea forces, as well as their missile systems.
In this particular case, it should be remembered that the Xi Jinping regime had threatened to unspecified retaliation if the president of Taiwan, Tsai Ing Wennow on a tour of Central America, ended up meeting with the president of the United States House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy.
The president could meet McCarthy in Los Angeles, during a layover on her return flight to Taipei from Belize.
On March 18, the Taiwan Air Force Command denounced that 26 combat aircraft and four ships of the Chinese regime approached its air and sea space, as they have been doing repeatedly in recent weeks.
Specific, 15 of the Chinese fighters reportedly entered the air defense identification zone southwest of Taiwan, as detailed by the Ministry of Defence of the country in a message on the social network Twitter.
Taiwan monitored the situation and assigned aircraft from the Area ForceNavy vessels, and land-based missile systems to respond to these activities.
This new incursion by China comes as Beijing prepares a possible blockade or direct attack on Taiwan, which has aroused great concern among the military leaders of USATaipei’s main ally.
In a January memorandum, the general of the US Air Force Mike Minihan instructed his officers to be prepared for a conflict between the United States and China in the year 2025.
China has sent Warshipsbombers, fighters and support aircraft into the airspace near Taiwan on an almost daily basis, hoping to wear down the island’s limited defense resources and undermine support for the pro-independence president. Tsai Ing-wen.
Chinese fighters have also faced us military aircraft and from allied countries in the international airspace of the South and East China Seas, which Beijing has called dangerous and threatening maneuvers.
