Taiwan Starts Two-Day Defensive Drills as Tensions With China Remain High

Taiwan’s military fired dozens of shells off its southern coast on Tuesday in a simulated defense of the island as Taiwan followed Chinese military drills with pre-planned defensive maneuvers of its own for nearly a week.

Taiwan kicked off its two-day military exercise — known as Tianlei, which loosely translates as “heavenly thunder” — with an hour-long sniping exercise that involved more than 700 soldiers with 38 howitzers, according to Taiwan’s 8th Army Corps, firing 114 shells into the water.
