According to Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND), the military responded by scrambling planes to intercept, issued radio warnings and mobilized surveillance and air defense assets.
The incursion happened on the day when Taiwanese people, along with Chinese communities around the world, are celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as Moon Festival, by watching the full moon and enjoying mooncakes.
The occasion is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese lunar calendar, which falls on Oct. 1 in the western calendar this year. [FULL STORY]
