Taiwan Sent Into A PANIC As Dozens Of Chinese War Planes Infiltrate Their Defense Zone

China sent a record 52 military aircrafts into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone this week, including 34 J-16, two Su-30 fighter jets, 12 nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, and many more all belonging to China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force. Taiwan issued radio warnings and initiated its air defense missile systems in response.

The Chinese planes flew near the Pratas Island in the South China Sea, located southwest of Taiwan and near the Chinese provinces of Fujian and Guangdong, a map of their flight paths indicated according to Taiwan’s defense ministry.

Taiwan’s air force could be heard in radio warnings commanding the Chinese aircrafts to “turn around and leave immediately” when they entered the ADIZ, according to CNN. Other countries, including the U.S. and China, have defense zones that “assist in early identification of aircrafts” near international airspace boundaries.

Chinese aircrafts made approximately 380 air incursions into Taiwan’s ADIZ in 2020, according to a Taiwanese defense official. Beijing is more forceful in its military demenor, having made more than 500 air incursions so far this year.

Chinese military planes were reported entering Taiwan’s ADIZ Saturday night, when 39 aircraft flew into the zone. China flew 25 planes into the ADIZ on Oct. 1 in a probable display of bravado on the country’s National Day.

Tensions between the two countries have intensified in recent months resulting in increased Chinese air missions in Taiwanese airspace. China recognizes Taiwan as its territory and argues its incursions into Taiwanese airspace are essential in defending its own sovereignty.

Chinese defense ministry spokesman Wu Qian cautioned in January that “Taiwan independence means war,” calling China’s military activities in the Taiwan Strait “necessary actions to safeguard national sovereignty and security.”

In an op-ed published Sunday, the Chinese state-backed outlet Global Times said Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party, has turned the island into “an evil force” that the mainland “must crush” and “get rid of strategically.”

State Department spokesman Ned Price confronted China’s “provocative military activity” near Taiwan in a statement Sunday, adding that such action “undermines regional peace and stability.”

“The U.S. commitment to Taiwan is rock solid and contributes to the maintenance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and within the region,” he said. “We will continue to stand with friends and allies to advance our shared prosperity, security, and values and deepen our ties with democratic Taiwan.”

30 fighter jets, a dozen nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, two Y-8 anti-submarine warplanes, and two KJ-500 airborne control planes belonging to China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force. Taiwan issued radio warnings and initiated its air defense missile systems in response.
