Taiwan Says More Drones Approached Its Outer Islands Friday

Taiwan’s military said it warned off seven drones flying over restricted waters surrounding its outer islands late Friday, the third consecutive day such incidents occurred. 

The army responded by firing flares to drive them away, and will remain on high alert, the military said in a statement Saturday. Drones were spotted over Kinmen, Lieyu, and the nearby Taiwan-administered Beiding island, while unidentified flying objects were seen approaching Matsu’s Liang Island and Dongyin.
