Taiwan reports largest daily incursion yet by Chinese air force
On Tuesday, twenty-eight Chinese military planes crossed into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identified Zones, representing the largest incursion between the two countries since the island began regularly reporting similar actions over the past year. Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense stated that the fleet consisted of fighter jets, bombers, anti-submarine, and early warning aircraft. The previously reported highest number of aircraft entering into Taiwan’s Air Defense Zone at one time was 25 on April 12. Beijing claims full sovereignty over Taiwan although the two entities have been separately governed for seven decades.
