Taiwan reported that 19 Chinese fighter jets entered the Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ).
According to the Taiwan News, in a statement by the Taiwan Defense Ministry, the Chinese Air Force violated the ADIZ yesterday with 4 H-6 bombers, 1 anti-submarine plane, 10 J- 16 and 4 SU-30 fighter jets capable of carrying nuclear weapons, it was said.
The flight route map, which shows Chinese fighter jets passing through the northeast of the disputed islands of Pratas, was also shared, and it was stated that a missile system was deployed and that Chinese fighter jets were activated to leave the region’s Chinese fighter jets.
Taipei has been complaining for more than a year about the repeated activities of the Chinese air force near the island. China, on the other hand, sees democratic Taiwan as a separatist province.

Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said on Sunday that the Chinese Air Force’s mission included four H-6 bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons, as well as an anti-submarine aircraft.
Located some 400 kilometers south of Taiwan, the disputed Pratas Islands are also known as the Dongsha Islands. There are also two coral reefs in the area. The islands, to which Taiwan has given national park status, are located on the maritime traffic between the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
On June 15, China violated the ADIZ with 28 fighter jets.
