(ETH) – Taiwan has reportedly fired missiles off its coast boosting the island’s defense against the increasingly aggressive actions of China according to a report from the Daily Star.  

Taiwan is an island off the south-east coast of China which is independent of the superpower. According to Taiwan’s defense ministry, this was part of a four-day missile test and other weapons would follow a similar drill in the coming days.

The report stated that the test took place off the coast of the easterly Taitung county and at the Jiupeng military base in the southernmost county of Pinging on Thursday. This missile test comes as tensions in the region escalated recently with both the US and China boosting its military deployment.
