China claims to have conducted drills near Taiwan

The People’s Liberation Army said on Monday that China’s military forces conducted another round of drills near Taiwan last week to boost collaborative combat operations, after the Chinese-controlled island reported an increase in activity.

For the last two years, Taiwan has complained about regular Chinese military activity near it, which is largely centered in the island’s air defense identification zone, or ADIZ.

On Friday, Taiwan’s air force raced to chase away 18 Chinese planes that had entered its air defense zone, and further intrusions were reported on Saturday and Sunday, but with fewer planes.

The Eastern Theater Command of the People’s Liberation Army stated in a statement that navy and air force assets conducted drills to the east and southwest of Taiwan from Friday to Sunday.
