On Wednesday, Taiwan scrambled jets to warn away 27 Chinese aircraft in its air defence zone, the island’s defence ministry said, adding that 22 of them crossed the median line separating the self-ruled island from China amid rising tensions. Japan estimated that five ballistic missiles landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, and four of those likely flew over Taiwan. If confirmed, it would mark a major escalation as it would be the first time China has flown missiles over Taiwan itself. Its defence ministry said it had strengthened its guard around the islands, which are located closer to China’s coastline than Taiwan.
