According to Taiwan News, Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense has detected six Chinese military aircraft, six naval ships and four coast guard vessels around the country between 6 a.m. on Thursday (June 6) and 6 a.m. on Friday (June 7).

According to the MND, a Chinese drone was spotted in the southwest corner of Taiwan's air defense identification zone (ADIZ), while a PLA helicopter was seen in the southeast ADIZ.

According to Taiwan News, Taiwan responded by sending aircraft, naval ships and coastal-based missile systems to monitor PLA activity.

China has increased its use of grey zone tactics since September 2020 by increasing the number of military aircraft and naval ships around Taiwan.

Grey zone tactics are specifically defined as “an effort, or series of efforts, beyond static-deterrence and reassurance that attempts to achieve one's security objectives without using direct and massive force.”

Moreover, tensions between China and Taiwan have been rising since Lai Ching Te was sworn in as the new president of the self-ruled island.

Taiwan has tracked Chinese military aircraft 54 ​​times and naval/coast guard ships 62 times so far this month.
