(News1st); Taiwan reported the largest incursion since October by China’s air force in its air defence zone, with the island’s defence ministry saying Taiwanese fighters scrambled to warn away 39 aircraft in the latest uptick in tensions.

Taiwan calls China’s repeated nearby military activities “grey zone” warfare, designed to both wear out Taiwan’s forces by making them repeatedly disarrange, and also to test Taiwan’s responses.

Furthermore, the Taiwan Ministry said the latest Chinese mission included 34 fighters plus four electronic warfare aircraft and a single bomber.

The Taiwan Ministry said that Taiwan sent combat aircraft to warn away the Chinese aircraft, while missile systems were deployed to monitor them.
