(AbsoluteNews.com) – In the last couple of years, China has made it clear it wants to force Taiwan to join its country. The island nation has been operating as its own nation since the 1940s. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) wants to put an end to that and has been increasingly more aggressive.
On Sunday, November 28, Beijing deployed 5 nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, 18 fighter jets, and a refueling aircraft. The planes entered Taiwan’s air defense buffer zone, causing the country to scramble its air force to chase off the Chinese military.

The Chinese government has sent its fighter jets into Taiwan’s air space multiple times in recent months. However, this was the first time the communists deployed a Y-20 aerial refueling aircraft. According to Fox News, the latest development has some military experts wondering if China plans to extend its military reach in the country past the buffer zone.
China’s aircraft traveled through the buffer zone in the southern part of the country before returning to the mainland. The United States has been training the Taiwanese military for a year in anticipation of a possible invasion by China. As time goes on, that seems like more of a possibility.
