Taipei, Dec. 5 (CNA) Two Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) warplanes entered Taiwan's southwest Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on Saturday, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said that day.

Taiwan's Air Force responded by scrambling planes and deploying air missile defense systems to monitor the Chinese aircraft, in addition to issuing radio warnings until the PLA planes left the area, the MND said.

The Chinese planes included one Y-8 anti-submarine plane and one Y-8 tactical reconnaissance aircraft, according to the ministry.

It was the fourth such incursion this week, the MND said.    [FULL  STORY]
