Taipei, Jan. 4 (CNA) Four Chinese military aircraft entered Taiwan's southwest air defense identification zone (ADIZ) on Monday, the third consecutive day on which such an incursion has occurred, according to Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND).

The planes involved were a Y-8 electronic warfare plane, a Y-8 anti-submarine aircraft, a Y-8 tactical reconnaissance plane and a Y-9 electronic warfare aircraft, the MND said.

The Air Force responded by scrambling fighter jets to monitor the Chinese aircraft, issuing radio warnings and mobilizing air defense assets until the planes left the ADIZ, it added.
