Taiwan says Chinese fighter jet briefly enters defence zone, third incursion in 7 days

Taiwan said a Chinese fighter jet briefly entered its air defence zone on Tuesday, the third incursion in a week, prompting the island to scramble its own aircraft in response.

Beijing views democratic self-ruled Taiwan as its own territory and has vowed to one day seize it, by force if necessary.

Taiwan’s air force said its planes broadcast warnings and “took active intercept responses” as China’s J-10 fighter briefly flew into the island’s southwestern air defence identification zone (ADIZ).
