“China’s military fired missiles into the sea on Thursday in live-fire military exercises around the island in [a tantrum over] US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit, even as Taipei played down the impact on flights and shipping. China tested several Dongfeng missiles northeast and southwest of Taiwan from 13:56 pm local time, according to a statement from the island’s Defense Ministry. Sun Li-fang, a ministry spokesman, said the missiles were fired from land and they hit the sea. … China separately said the missiles accurately hit targets in seas east of Taiwan. The statement by the Eastern Military Command of the People’s Liberation Army said it had completed the drills, and that it had lifted air and sea controls.” (08/04/22)
