Over the past five days, China has been sending military aircraft and unmanned drones into areas close to Taiwan and Japan’s westernmost islands as part of its effort to intimidate Taiwan and the United States.

Taiwan’s military reported that Chinese military aircraft have entered what it calls its “Air Defense Identification Zone” or crossed the Taiwan Strait median line at least 131 times during this period.

The aircraft have included at least 105 fighter jets and other types of warplanes. While Taiwan has reported similar incursions into this airspace since at least 2019, the number of sorties detected in recent days has been unprecedented.

Japan’s defense ministry reported multiple flights of Chinese military drones near Miyakojima, one of Japan’s westernmost islands, on Aug. 4. This was just two days after Japan reported that at least five Chinese missiles had landed in its exclusive economic zone.

The Chinese military said in a statement on Saturday that its military exercises in the sea and airspaces north, east and southwest of Taiwan were meant to test its capabilities for land and sea assaults. State media has indicated that the actions could mark a new pattern of more regular and more aggressive incursions.

Chinese missiles land near Taiwan and in Japan’s economic zone

At least 11 Chinese missiles fell into the sea to the north, south and east of Taiwan on Thursday. The People’s Liberation Army declared that its missiles “all precisely hit their targets,” even as Japan said that five had landed in its exclusive economic zone.

Japan’s Ministry of Defense described the paths of nine of the missiles, including the five that Japan said had landed in its exclusive economic zone — the first time any had landed in those waters.

Where China is planning military drills

Shortly after Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plane landed in Taiwan late Tuesday, China announced it would hold military drills in an area that appeared to infringe on Taiwan’s territorial waters, even closer to Taiwan than similar areas that were announced during the Taiwan Strait crisis in the mid-1990s.

In a statement published by the state news agency, Xinhua, China warned ships and planes not to enter those areas for “security reasons.” One of the planned drill areas appeared to be less than 12 miles from Kaohsiung, a southern port city, according to a map released by Xinhua.
