Quoted by Reuters, this is China's latest military maneuver against Taiwan, which has been considered by Beijing as a territory of dissident because it wants to gain independence. Until now, President Xi Jinping's administration has not commented on its military mission to Taiwan. So far, China has often deployed dozens of military aircraft to Taiwan as a bluff to stop Taipei from seeking international recognition and ways to achieve independence.
China is determined to do anything, including military means, to protect its country's sovereignty and deal with collusion between Taiwan and Western countries, especially the United States, which has been close to Taipei. In 2020, Taiwan's Ministry of Defense noted dozens of Chinese fighter jets breached their territory hundreds of times.
