Some sources reported on Sunday that the Chinese military had deployed advanced Dongfeng-17 missiles off the coast of Taiwan.

Iran Press/ Asia: According to the China Morning Post, the Chinese military had deployed a number of Dongfeng-17 missiles near the island of Taiwan and China intends to gradually replace them with the Dongfeng 11 and 15 missiles, which they are less accurate.

Analysts say the new missiles are undetectable and repel any attack from Taiwan. Some Chinese analysts have described the deployment of DongFeng-17 missiles near Taiwan as media speculation.

The Taiwanese Liberty Times, meanwhile, expressed concern that Dongfeng missiles could target Taiwanese air bases in the east of the island.

Taiwanese media also reported the deployment of a number of G-20 stealth fighters and Chinese naval units in the region.
