Taiwan Alleges Record Number Of Chinese Warships Around Island


Taipei has claimed a record 16 Chinese warships were spotted around Taiwan 24 hours late last week, just days after 73 PLA aircraft reportedly crossed the Taiwan Strait median line or Taiwan’s air defense identification zone.

Former US Pacific Command Joint Intelligence Center former director Carl Schuster told CNN the increased activity was effectively to “practice, rehearse and train for the ‘moment’ should it come,” referring to potential military intervention in Taiwan.

On Sunday, China’s Global Times outlet acknowledged that the “intensive exercises demonstrate the PLA’s capabilities in encircling the island.”
