In a hostile display of military might, China held live-fire drills and deployed warplanes to the South China Sea.
According to a Breitbart News report, “JH-7 fighter bombers” and several warplanes were sent to the “disputed Paracel Islands late last week.”
The Chinese media claimed that the drills were held by “[a] brigade under the [Chinese People’s Liberation Army] PLA Southern Theater Command Navy aviation forces based in South China’s Hainan Province.”
The action comes after the U.S. performed drills near the Philippines in a zone the communist party of China disputes.
