The state media reports that the planes crossed the Strait, but the destination and intent of the aircraft remain unknown.
Beijing deployed several SU-35 fighter jets to the Taiwan Strait as reported by Beijing’s state TV CGTN, without providing any additional details on where they were headed and what mission they intended to carry out.
The report came ahead of US House speaker Nancy Pelosi’s arrival at an airport on the self-governing island. Her plane took off from Malaysia and landed at Taiwan’s Songshan Airport at 10:44 pm local time.
