WORLD War Three fears are mounting after China sent another 19 fighter jets into Taiwan airspace.
Taiwan’s air force scrambled on Thursday to warn off the Chinese aircraft which entered its air defence zone, Taiwan’s defence ministry said.
It marks the latest uptick in tensions across the Taiwan Strait.
The Chinese aircraft included 12 J-16 fighters and two nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, the ministry added.
It comes just days after China flew 10 fighter jets into Taiwan airspace after sending planes over 15 times in two weeks.
Beijing has sent different aircrafts including fighter jets, spotter planes and bombers into ADIZ every day this month, except for on September 2, reports Taiwan News.
China has been ramping up its gray zone tactics for the past year by routinely sending aircraft into the zone.
According to data from the MND, Chinese aircrafts have been tracked in Taiwan’s ADIZ 155 times this year.
