Taiwan recorded no fewer than 13 incursions by Chinese military planes into its air defence identification zone (ADIZ) on Saturday, the most of any such incidents in a single day so far this year, Taiwan News has reported.
One Y-8 anti-submarine aircraft, four J-16 fighter jets, and eight nuclear-capable H-6K bombers were involved in the incidents.
Although it is unclear why China has stepped up the number of such incursions in recent days, but it is widely speculated that Beijing is testing newly sworn in US President Joe Biden's commitment to the defence of Taiwan.
