Chinese warplane breaches Korea's air defence zone Friday Updated: 2019-11-29 17:40:30 KST

Another Chinese warplane today violated South Korea's air defense identification zone, or KADIZ.
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said this morning that the plane, presumed to be a Y-9 surveillance aircraft, entered the KADIZ at around 10:53 AM, prompting the South Korean Air Force to scramble fighter jets.
The Chinese plane went back into the zone twice more before leaving for the last time at 1:30 P.M.
An official at the JCS added that the Chinese plane did not, however, violate Korea's territorial airspace.
Though the zone is not part of Korea's airspace foreign warplanes are obligated to make prior notification before entering it in line with international customs.
This year alone, China has entered KADIZ 26 times.
