China lanza misiles que sobrevuelan Taiwán

By Jordi Bou

August 5, 2022 - Beijing disparó varios misiles balísticos Dongfeng hacia las aguas que circundan Taiwán, como parte de las mayores maniobras militares en la historia de la región, tras la visita de la presidenta de la Cámara de Repesentantes de EUA Nancy Pelosi a la isla.

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.
