الصين ترسل صواريخ محلقة فوق تايوان

By Jordi Bou

August 5, 2022 - أطلقت بكين عدة صواريخ دونغفنغ الباليستية إلى المياه المحيطة بتايوان كجزء من أكبر مناوراتها العسكرية في المنطقة، وذلك بعد زيارة رئيسة مجلس النواب الأميركي نانسي بيلوسي للجزيرة.

The missiles fired by the PLA’s Rocket Force are reportedly the DF-15B versions of China’s Dongfeng “East Wind” arsenal.

Although designed to carry conventional explosives, the DF-15B is probably capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

China's missile launches are causing disruption to shipping lanes and flights to and from Taiwan.

Ships have been forced to re-route, with days-long disruptions expected to have an impact on supply chains with delays to global shipping.

Some ballistic missiles fired by China appear to have landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), Japanese defence minister Nobuo Kishi said.
