The People's Republic of China has launched a two-day military exercise, Joint-Sword 2024A, around Taiwan. China's exercises began after the inauguration of Taiwan's new president, Lai Qingde, on May 20. The representative of the Chinese command, Li Xi, informed that the ground forces, naval forces, air force and missile forces are involved in the exercises. He also noted that the purpose of the exercise is to test the “real combat capabilities” of the forces of the Eastern Combat Command Zone. In response to China's exercises, Taiwan brought to the coast launchers of Hsiung Feng III anti-ship missile systems with a range of hitting targets up to 400 kilometers. 10 F-16V fighters were also lifted into the air from Hualien Air Base. The Taiwan General Staff reported that 33 aircraft and 31 Chinese ships were recorded approaching the island.

I wonder if there will be exercises B, C, and D in the future? I feel like the situation in the Taiwan Strait is getting more and more tense.
