Two Chinese military planes enter Taiwan's ADIZ
Taipei, Jan. 19 (CNA) Chinese military aircraft entered Taiwan's southwest air defense identification zone (ADIZ) for the ninth straight day on Tuesday, according to Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND).
The latest incursions involved a Y-8 electronic intelligence plane and a Y-8 electronic warfare aircraft, the MND said.
The Air Force responded by scrambling fighter jets to monitor the Chinese aircraft, issuing radio warnings and mobilizing air defense assets until the planes left the ADIZ, it added.
On Sept. 17, 2020, the ministry established a section on its official website detailing the movements of Chinese military planes near Taiwan.
An ADIZ is an airspace over land or water in which the identification, location and control of aircraft is performed in the interest of national security.
