China sends 27 warplanes into Taiwan ADIZ airspace – Latest News Today
China gave a preview Wednesday of what might be coming for Taiwan by sending 27 warplanes into the island’s air defense identification zone — a buffer of airspace commonly referred to as an ADIZ — according to Taiwan’s Defense Ministry.
Twenty-two of those jets crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait, an unprecedented number since the island began publicly releasing information about China’s incursions into its ADIZ about two years ago, a flight map provided by the ministry showed.
The incursions come as China begins military drills around Taiwan to protest this week’s visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. CNN’s Stephen Jiang reports.
