Taipei, Nov. 10 (CNA) A total of 26 Chinese military aircraft and four naval ships were detected in areas around Taiwan on Thursday, of which six warplanes crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait, according to the Ministry of National Defense (MND).
MND data showed two Shenyang J-11 and four J-16 fighter jets flew across the median line.
