International News: Taiwan on high alert following rare nighttime Chinese military activity

Posted: Thursday, December 7, 2023. 9:21 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, Taiwanese officials reported rare nighttime Chinese military activity around the island.

According to Reuters, just around 7:30pm on Thursday evening (Taiwan) it detected Su-30, J-10 and J-11 fighters as well as nuclear capable H-6 bombers and early warning aircraft operating off northern and central Taiwan and to the island’s southwest.

Thirteen of those aircraft crossed the Taiwan Strait’s median line.

The Taiwan Strait serves as an unofficial barrier between the two sides, but Chinese planes now regularly fly over it.

Taiwan sent its own forces to monitor, Taiwan’s Defence Ministry noted.

Recently, Taiwan has reported at least four other similar large-scale sorties by China’s air force, which Beijing has not commented on, though those took place during the day.

China says its activities near Taiwan are aimed at preventing “collusion” between Taiwan separatists and the United States, and protecting China’s territorial integrity.
