China Daily reported that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army had organized exercises near Taiwan.

On Monday, the Eastern Theater WeChat Official Account stated that those drills occurred in the sea as well as over the airspace of Taiwan.

The forces, including naval, air, and permanent guiding forces, amalgamated during the exercise from May 6 to 8.

The purpose was to further test and enhance the joint combat capability of multiple services and arms.

According to Taiwan’s Defense Ministry, China deployed bombers, fighters, and anti-submarine aircraft.

Reuters reported that China doesn’t shoot any bullets during exercises, and the Chinese aircraft don’t fly in Taiwan’s air space.

But in a separate move, two Chinese anti-submarine warfare planes entered Taiwan’s air defense identification zone.

According to the Ministry of National Defense of Taiwan, two Chinese aircraft flew into its southwest corner last Sunday. It marked the sixth intrusion this month.
