About 22 of the Chinese fighter jets had reported crossing the median line that separates Taiwan from China, as tensions between the two countries heightened.

The Chinese “mission” included about 16 Chinese Su-30 fighter jets and 11 other fighting aircraft, according to Taiwan’s defence ministry.

However, a source from Taiwan said that the 22 fighter jets that crossed the median line, didn’t fly too far into the buffer from China, with neither side’s aircraft normally crossing the median line.

Context

China stopped importing several agricultural items from Taiwan and demonstrated its displeasure with Taiwan via a slew of military drills, following US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi visiting Taiwan.
