Two Chinese aircraft enter Taiwan's ADIZ Sunday
Taipei, Nov. 12 (CNA) A Chinese Y-8 anti-submarine military aircraft and another Y-8 surveillance plane flew into Taiwan's southwestern air defense identification zone (ADIZ) Sunday, according to the Ministry of National Defense (MND).
In response to the incident, which has become an almost daily occurrence in recent months amid escalating cross-Taiwan strait tensions, Taiwan's Air Force scrambled jets to chase off the Chinese aircraft, issued radio warnings and mobilized air defense systems to monitor their movements, the MND said in a statement.
On Sept. 17, the ministry set up a section on its official website to inform the public of the movements of Chinese military planes near Taiwan.
