According to a former PLA colonel, the successful launch of the DF-26B and DF-21D missiles in August is a “warning” to the United States that they should not take any military risk against China.

Two of China’s aircraft carrier killer missiles that were launched hit a moving ship near the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, the South China Morning Post announced on Saturday.

The move came as a response to a US Spy plane U-2 aircraft, which violated a no-fly zone as Beijing was conducting a live-fire naval drill in the Bohai Sea.

“So several days later after the aircraft carrier maneuvers, we launched the DF-21 and DF-26, and the missiles hit a vessel sailing south of the Paracel Islands”, said Wang Xiangsui, a former senior colonel.

“This is a warning to the US, asking it not to take any military risks”, “Such actions mark the bottom line of Sino-US confrontation.”

The former PLA colonel said that the US estimates that as “a show of force”, while China is doing it “because of their provocation”.

Following the move, US Airforce declared that its U-2 did not violate international rules and that its military moves in the region would continue.
