Taiwan defence ministry announces plans to strengthen drone defence system

Taiwan has announced it will strengthen its drone defence system after the island’s military confirmed a drone from mainland China flew over a Taipei-controlled islet and recorded video of soldiers stationed there, according to a report by South China Morning Post.

Taiwan’s defence ministry plans to deploy a counter drone system in 2023, initially on small islands and islets near mainland China in response to threats of drone incursions, according to the ministry.

The ministry said the Taiwanese military’s countermeasures would include firing flares and sounding alarms as warnings, and chief defence officers might increase combat readiness depending on the threat level.
