China fired a missile during a long-range live-fire exercise in the Taiwan Strait.

A senior U.S. military commander said the decision by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army to fly missiles over Taiwan must be challenged.

Vice Admiral Karl Thomas, commander of the U.S. Seventh Fleet, said China‘s actions cannot be ignored. If this is not done, such actions by China will become the norm, he said.

China held military exercises around Taiwan earlier this month, but did not confirm whether any missiles flew directly over the island.

Tensions rose after U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan in August.
