Chinese military’s website 81.cn and newspaper PLA Daily say in their reports that the warplanes set out from an airfield in South China to fly continuously for several thousand km and successful conducted precision attacks on various targets.

Shen said that it was the fourth training of its kind this year and that Chinese aircraft always conduct patrols of China’s East China Sea Air Defence Identification Zone to identify the nationality and type of aircrafts entering the zone and to track them.

The report says that there are no military targets in that sea area except the U.S. navy.
