China Simulates ‘Strikes on Targets in Taiwan’ as Drills Continue

KABUL (BNA) China’s military has staged “simulated joint precision strikes on key targets in Taiwan” during a second day of drills launched near the island in the wake of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen’s brief visit to the United States.

The announcement on Sunday came as Taiwan’s defense ministry said it had detected multiple Chinese air force sorties and was monitoring Beijing’s missile forces.

China, which claims democratically governed Taiwan as its own territory, began the three days of military exercises around the island on Saturday, the day after Tsai Ing-wen returned from the US, where she held a meeting with the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy.

Chinese state television reported the combat readiness patrols and drills around Taiwan were continuing.
