  • The Guardian: China’s recent military drills near Taiwan were a substantive and “war-like” escalation on those conducted last August despite not including any missile launches, some analysts have said… some military analysts have said that this weekend’s drills were more specific about China’s intent to annex Taiwan, demonstrative of a pre-invasion attack, and raised the risk of miscalculation and escalation.
  • From Saturday morning until Monday evening, the PLA sent 232 warplanes towards and around Taiwan, inside its air defence identification zone. The ADIZ is a large area far beyond sovereign territory, monitored for defence purposes. This compared with 167 during the Pelosi drills, although higher activity was recorded for days before and afterwards, and set a new normal for the months to come. There was a huge diversity among the aircraft reported inside the ADIZ this time. Monday’s cohort included 13 different types, including five models of fighter jets, a reconnaissance drone, transport planes, nuclear-capable bombers, and refuelling aircraft.
  • The aircraft carrier Shandong, which led drills in the western Pacific Ocean for the first time, launched J-15 fighter jets towards Taiwan hundreds of times to simulate direct strikes on the island.

Assertive violations are meant to keep a consistent level of pressure on Taiwan’s armed forces. Finally, reactionary violations involve ten or more aircraft and are intended to signal Beijing’s displeasure with a geopolitical development involving Taiwan.
