< p>Taiwan Armed Forces have installed anti-drone defenses on the offshore islands of Kinmen and Matsu. This comes after several incidents with Chinese UAVs, Taiwan News reports.

Anti-drone guns block the frequency used by the ground station for communication with a drone, causing the UAV to go out of control and crash.

Civilian drones have been spotted over islands off the coast of China's Fujian province. The appearance of the UAV is seen as another sign of provocation by China, in addition to recent large-scale military maneuvers and near-daily incursions by Chinese warplanes into Taiwan's air defense identification zone.
