Chinese spy balloons are targeting many countries including India, India also needs to worry

Vivid News 24: Days after the US military shot down a Chinese surveillance plane that was above key assets in the country, a media source claimed that China had operated a fleet of spy balloons that were purportedly directed towards various nations, including India and Japan.

According to US officials who have notified Indian authorities, the Chinese surveillance balloon that was shot down by a fighter jet on Saturday in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South Carolina has been located. Representatives from nearly 40 embassies were briefed on Monday by Wendy Sherman, the deputy secretary of state.

The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that the surveillance balloon effort, which has operated for several years off the south coast of China, in part from the Hainan province, has gathered information on military assets in countries and regions that are becoming increasingly important to China strategically, such as Japan, India, Vietnam, Taiwan, and the Philippines.

The Post’s research was founded on conversations with numerous anonymous defence and intelligence officials. According to officials, these surveillance airships have allegedly been found on five different continents and are apparently operated in part by the PLA (People’s Liberation Army) air force.

“These balloons are all part of a PRC (People’s Republic of China) fleet of balloons built to undertake surveillance activities, which also infringed upon the sovereignty of other countries,” a senior defence official was cited as saying. In addition to the balloon that was noticed last week, the daily reports that at least four other balloons have allegedly been seen over Hawaii, Florida, Texas, and Guam in recent years.

The Chinese surveillance airships, it was said, were only recently discovered, despite the fact that three of the four occurrences occurred while Trump was president. According to a series of pictures provided by the Pentagon, the high-altitude surveillance balloon was found on Tuesday.
