Taiwan scrambled jets Wednesday morning in response to over two dozen warplanes and three ships entering their defense zone from China.
The Ministry of Defense announced that 25 warplanes and three ships approached Taiwan in the early hours of the morning.
According to the ministry, 19 of the planes fully entered the island’s air defense identification zone.
Taiwan reacted aggressively by scrambling fighters and activating missile defense systems in preparation of an attack. Warships were also dispatched.
However, the Chinese invaders left the area well before the engagement and returned to the mainland.

Taiwan, also known as the Republic of China, is an island off the coast of the Asian mainland. Taiwan has long declared itself independent of the People’s Republic of China and has claimed continuation of governance from the pre-revolutionary Chinese state.

The People’s Republic of China — ruled by the Chinese Communist Party — has long claimed sovereignty over Taiwan and the Taiwan Strait, the relatively narrow strip of ocean between the island of Taiwan and the Chinese mainland.
The United States doesn’t have official relations with Taiwan but has been stepping up engagement with the island as China seeks to isolate it from global institutions.
The U.S. is preparing to send 100 to 200 troops to Taiwan for training amid the rising tensions, a U.S. official familiar with the planning confirmed to Fox News last week.
This number will expand a much smaller training program, which has included the National Guard, Special Ops, and U.S. Marines in the past.
The Michigan National Guard will also train a contingent of the Taiwanese Army, including some training as part of larger exercises, on U.S. soil. Full Story
