Taiwan reports 21 Chinese fighter jet incursions after Pelosi visit
Taiwanese officials said 21 Chinese military aircraft violated Taiwan’s air defense zone as U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi began her visit to the self-ruled island amid a dispute with Beijing.
The island’s defense ministry said in a statement on Twitter: “21 PLA aircraft … entered #Taiwan’s southwest ADIZ on August 2, 2022,” referring to the air defense identification zone.
The ADIZ is not the same as Taiwan’s territorial airspace but includes a far greater area that overlaps with part of China’s own air defense identification zone and even includes some of the mainland.
