Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

Taiwan has shot down a Chinese drone which violated its airspace after issuing multiple warnings. The incident occurred over Shi Islet which is a Taiwanese island that houses a military post.  This comes just a day after a similar incident occured in the same area where a Chinese drone was warned away with live ammunition. Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen has ordered the Taiwanese military to take “necessary and strong countermeasures” to ensure the integrity of Taiwan’s airspace.
