Taiwan Shoots Down Drone from China

HeadlineSep 02, 2022

Taiwan’s government says it has shot down a civilian drone from China for the first time. On Thursday, Taiwan’s premier said his government had taken the “appropriate” response to repeated incursions by pilotless aircraft crossing the Taiwan Strait.

Premier Su Tseng-chang: “China has drones flying into our country, and they even take videos to send back for use as internal propaganda. We have repeatedly warned and repeatedly asked China not to invade and intrude. Also, the Taiwanese people feel resentment toward these actions.”
