Taiwan staged its own military drills this week, following a set of exercises by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army around the autonomous island.
On Monday and Tuesday, Taiwan’s self-defense force launched 117 medium- and long-range missiles from its Jiupeng military base into waters east of the island, according to Taiwanese Defense Ministry spokesperson Lee Chao-ming. The island’s air force also simulated defending against a naval assault from the southeast by sending two F-16 fighter jets armed with AGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missiles.
