China has been ramping up its military drills and presence surrounding neighbouring Taiwan in order to intimidate the small nation. Video footage shows China’s PLA launching back-to-back missiles during an aggressive war rehearsal towards Taiwan, as the world watches on to see if China will try and retake Taiwan. The missiles can be seen and heard from miles away due to the noise they make upon detention and the smoke that trails behind them.

Military experts have been warning of the high chance that China will begin an all-out war with Taiwan, and could begin striking at any time as tensions have reached boiling point.

The video footage shows China’s military launching missiles up into the sky one by one.

Each missile leaves behind a trail of white smoke as they rocket towards its destination.

China’s PLA missile fire can be heard from all around the surrounding areas, as the missiles grumble loudly upon detonation.

Tensions peaked this week after US House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan, upsetting Chinese President Xi Jinping, which some geopolitical experts have claimed was a direct provocation.

The former Chinese ambassador to the UK warned Taiwan that seeking protection from America would not work.

Liu Xiaoming Tweeted: “The one-China principle is the key stabilising force for peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and the three China-US joint communiques are the real ‘guardrails’ for peaceful coexistence between China and the United States.

“Clinging to the United States to seek “independence” is a dead end, and attempts to use the Taiwan question to contain China are doomed to failure.

“In the face of great cause of natl unification, the Chinese people have the gut not to be misled by fallacies, the ambition to never be intimidated or crushed, the determination to unite as one, & the ability to resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and national dignity.”
