The Chinese Communist regime flew 25 fighter jets into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on October 1, a national holiday in China when the Communist Party of China (CCP) celebrates its hostile takeover of the mainland in the late 1940s .
Taiwan’s military said in a statement Friday that the fighters involved included 18 J-16 jets, four Su-30 aircraft, two H-6 bombers and one anti-submarine aircraft.
Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense said Taiwan responded to hostile actions by deploying air patrol forces and tracking Chinese aircraft on its air defense systems.
ADIZ is a specific area beyond a country’s sovereign territory within which the country requires aircraft identification, location and air traffic control in the interest of its national security.

China has sent military planes to the island that it claims as part of its territory over the past few years, with the exercises escalating military harassment.
The CCP claims that Taiwan is its territory, despite the fact that Taiwan has been self-governing since 1949, and has never ruled Taiwan.
Last week, the communist regime flew 24 fighter jets toward Taiwan, a day after the island nation applied to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) – a trade group that China has also joined. had applied for.
Beijing’s biggest daily military incursion occurred on June 15, when the Chinese military sent 28 jets to Taiwan’s ADIZ after leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized nations issued a statement calling for a peaceful resolution of cross-Taiwan Strait issues.
Friday’s demonstration was the second largest daily strike since 28 jets entered Taiwan’s ADIZ in June.
Beijing labels any foreign government engagement with Taiwan as a challenge to its sovereignty. It squeezes Taiwan’s international standing, trying to isolate Asian democracy from global groups such as the World Health Organization. China also shies away from countries that want to establish closer ties with Taiwan, such as Lithuania and Japan, which donated vaccines to Taiwan this year.
