Taiwan's Defense Ministry said Monday, that 52 Chinese warplanes made incursions into its air defense identification zone, marking the highest number since the island began publicly reporting such activities last year.
The latest incursions come after 39 Chinese military planes flew into the zone on Saturday.
Among the 52 Chinese aircrafts that flew through the zone, 34 J-16 fighter jets, 12 H-6 bombers, two SU-30 fighters, two Y-8 anti-submarine warfare planes, and two KJ-500 were sighted by the defense ministry.
The map released by the ministry showed that all 52 incursions were spotted at the extreme southwestern part of Taiwan's ADIZ.
In response to the Chinese activity, radio warnings were issued, with air defense missile systems also being deployed to monitor the incursions.
China's state-run Global Times on Sunday said the People's Liberation Army was conducting "expanded drills" near the island.
However,.. the incursions do not violate Taiwan's sovereign airspace, which extends 12 nautical miles from its coast.
Since last October, 145 incursions by Chinese warplanes have been reported by Taiwan.
