Taiwan Shot-Down Chinese SU-35 Fighter Jet For Violating Its Airspac

Taiwan has reportedly shot-down a Chinese Air Force, Russian-origin Su-35 aircraft that supposedly violated its airspace. Multiple videos circulating on social media show a jet, believed to be a Chinese People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) Su-35, immersed in smoke.

According to another unconfirmed and trending social media reports, the SU-35 jet crashed in Guangxi, an autonomous coastal region in southern China, bordering Vietnam, after intruding into the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea.

However, many users have flagged the report calling it false while some said that the fighter jet crashed due to technical glitch. There is no official statement either from China or Taiwan.

Taiwan's ministry of defence has responded categorically that this is fake news.
