Chinese, Russian warplanes enter South Korea's air defence zone without notice

    WORLD  30 November 2022 - 12:17

    Two Chinese and six Russian warplanes entered South Korea's air defence identification zone (KADIZ) without notice on November 30, prompting the Air Force to scramble fighters to the scene, Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said.

    The JCS said the warplanes flew across the KADIZ but did not violate South Korea's territorial air, India Today reports, citing the Yonhap news agency.

    At 5.48 am, two Chinese H-6 bombers flew into the KADIZ from an area 126 kilometres northwest of Leo Islet, a submerged rock south of the southern island of Jeju, and they left the KADIZ at 6.13 am. At 6.44 am., the bombers reentered the KADIZ from an area northeast of South Korea's southern port city of Pohang and exited the zone at 7.07 am.

    Then six Russian aircraft -- four TU-95 bombers and two SU-35 fighters - as well as two Chinese H-6 bombers flew into the KADIZ from an area 200 km northeast of the South's Ulleung Island at 12.18 pm and exited the zone at 12.36 pm.

    South Korean military aircraft, including F-15K jets, were deployed in a tactical step against a potential accidental situation, according to the JCS, the Yonhap news agency reported.
