27 Chinese military planes fly into Taiwan airspace as tensions in South China Sea continue to rise

China has flown another 27 military planes into Taiwan’s airspace as tensions as around the South China Sea island continue to rise.

The Taiwanese Ministry of National Defense said that the Chinese military aircrafts entered the south west area of the nation’s Air Defense Identification Zone earlier today.

They tweeted: ’27 PLA aircraft (KJ-500 AEW&C*2, Y-9 EW, H-6*5, Y-20 Aerial Refueling, J-10*6, J-11*4 and J-16*8) entered Taiwan’s southwest ADIZ on November 28, 2021.’

The latest move comes just days after China’s military carried out ‘combat readiness’ patrols in the direction of the Taiwan Strait as a U.S. Congressional delegation made a surprise visit to Taipei and offered support to the Chinese-claimed, democratically governed island.

On Friday, the five members of the U.S. House of Representatives arrived in Taiwan for a two-day trip, the second time in a month U.S. lawmakers have visited.
