Taiwan's Ministry of Defence says it tracked 24 Chinese military aircraft, 6 naval ships around nation

Taiwan's Ministry of Defence has said it tracked 24 Chinese military aircraft and six naval vessels around Taiwan between 6 a.m. on Thursday (Nov. 30) and 6 a.m. on Friday (Dec. 1).

Of the 24 People’s Liberation Army (PLA) aircraft, 12 were tracked in Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ), including six Chengdu J-10 combat jets and two Shenyang J-16 fighter jets that crossed the Taiwan Strait median line, according to the MND as quoted by Taiwan News.

Meanwhile, one Shaanxi Y-8 anti-submarine warfare plane, one Shaanxi Y-9 transport plane, one KJ-500 airborne early warning and control aircraft, and one Harbin Z-9 anti-submarine warfare helicopter entered the southwest corner of the ADIZ.

In response, Taiwan sent aircraft and naval ships and deployed air defense missile systems to monitor PLA activity.

Beijing sent 362 military aircraft and 182 naval ships around Taiwan last month.
