TAIPEI – Taiwan will resume forced road removal exercises later this month with its annual air strike exercise. These include stopping traffic and instructing pedestrians to stay indoors as Chinese military exercises increase across the island.
The resumption of evictions, which virtually shut down towns and cities across Taiwan for 30 minutes, supported Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has renewed discussions in Taiwan about the best way to respond to the Chinese attack target.
China claims their territory as a democratically ruled island. In Taiwan, the law requires regular air strike training, but the COVID-19 pandemic has canceled 30 minutes of forced removal from the road over the past two years.
The Defense Ministry announced that evacuation drills would resume across Taiwan in late July, with sirens sounding in the streets and air strike sirens sent via text message urging people to evacuate.
At a press conference on Tuesday. Sun Lee Hwan, a spokesman for the ministry, said: “Only through thorough preparation and practice in peacetime can we immediately demonstrate our full combat capability and make people live during the war. And reduce the impact on property.”
Sun said the four-day air strike training will be held in Taiwan this week, with large annual Han Kuang military exercises across the island. The siren will sound at half past noon in the capital Taipei. (0330 GMT) July 25th. Pedestrians have to wait in the car as the car was dragged to the side of the road at that time. After 30 minutes, the siren sounds completely clear.
China, which has not forcibly denied the occupation of Taiwan, has called for increased military activity near the island over the past two years to meet its demands for sovereignty. On Friday, 4,444 Chinese fighters crossed the sensitive central line of the Taiwan Strait, which Taipei accused of provoking.
Taiwan’s President Tsai Ying-wen has repeatedly pledged to protect the island, with military modernization a top priority, saying only those people can determine the island’s future.
