Japan Dispatches F-15s, E-767s And P-3 Into China’s Air Defense Zone, China Scrambles Su-30 In Response
by Tyler Durden
China’s escalation and re-escalation described in detail yesterday, has just been met with a corresponding re-re-escalation by Japan.
China’s Ministry of Defense reports that the nation identified Japanese military planes that entered into Chinese air defense identification zone today.
7 batches of 10 Japanese planes consisting of E-767, P-3 and F-15 entered into the zone
China has also identified 2 batches of 2 U.S. surveillance planes consisting of P-3 and EP-3, without specifying whether the planes entered into the zone
China scrambled Su-30, J-11 and other aircraft in response.
And now it’s China’s turn to, once again, respond. And then Japan and the US again, and so on, until someone gets hurt.
