A warning of the drills was reported on the Hainan Maritime Safety Administration of the People’s Republic of China.

The drills were also reported by a local journalist on the ground: “China has begun conducting massive drills off the coast of Hainan in the South China Sea.”

The news comes after warplanes from the People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theater Command conducted drills over rugged terrain in western China to simulate battle conditions over Taiwan.

An editorial in the Global Times said: “The mainland needs to continue to prepare for a possible military clash across the Straits.

“A military showdown with Taiwan is becoming more probable and may take place sooner rather than later.”

On Tuesday a US aircraft carrier sailed through the disputed South China Sea to the Philippines.

There has also been huge tension between China and Taiwan, which the communist nation considers to be a “rogue state” and has never ruled out military intervention.

The US also recently deployed aircraft carriers backed by destroyers to the disputed waters in an apparent challenge to Beijing’s territorial claims.

This reassures US allies in the region but also prompts concerns of China’s own show of force.

General Rolando Bautista from the Philippine army said: “It’s a showcase of the capability of the US armed forces not only by sea but also by air.
