The limit has been exceeded. “From 11 a.m., multiple groups of fighter jets and warships Chinese Exercises were conducted around the strait Taiwan The center line of the strait has been crossed,” Taiwan’s defense ministry said in a statement.
Taipei reported an increase of 49 Chinese airstrikes into its Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on Wednesday and Thursday, including 44 from beyond the equator. “This Chinese military exercise, or Launching ballistic missiles Or deliberately crossing the center line of the strait is a very provocative act,” he continued.
An unofficial border between Taiwan and mainland China, the median line was once quietly respected by both armies and rarely crossed by Chinese military aircraft or ships. But since Beijing declared in 2020 that this unofficial border no longer exists, Chinese incursions have multiplied.
The question of border crossing is sensitive because the Taiwan Strait is narrow – only 130 kilometers in places – and incursions increase the risk of accidental armed confrontation.
