The People's Liberation Army fired several ballistic missiles into waters to the east of Taiwan on Thursday afternoon, with all of them hitting targets accurately, according to a military spokesman.

Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesman for the PLA Eastern Theater Command, said that rocket forces in multiple locations on the mainland launched several types of missiles carrying conventional warheads to designated waters off the eastern coast of Taiwan.

The drills tested the rocket forces' capabilities to conduct precision attacks and area-denial tasks, he noted, adding that the missile test operations had concluded and related airspace and waters had been reopened to civilian use.
