According to Taiwan’s Defense Ministry, Chinese bombers, fighter jets and anti-submarine aircraft flew through Taiwanese air-space on two consecutive days over the weekend. Taiwan scrambled its air force and missile defense systems in response to the threat. Some international experts surmise that the bold Chinese incursions over the Taiwan administered Pratas Islands in the South China Sea (China had for years refrained from conducting similar missions over the Pratas Islands) are an effort to assess the resolve of the Biden administration to interject itself into the China-Taiwan dilemma.
