On August 4, the Chinese military conducted live-fire drills in six coastal waters around Taiwan. China’s Eastern Military Command said it had carried out long-range firing in precision strikes at specific areas in the eastern part of the Taiwan Strait, but netizens mocked it as “dynamite fishing.” Netizens filmed dead fish piled up on a beach in Taiwan on August 4.

According to CNA, Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense made an announcement at 5:30 pm on August 4 that the CCP had launched Dongfeng ballistic missiles into the waters surrounding the north, south, and east of Taiwan.
According to a report by the Japanese Ministry of National Defense, it is estimated that the Chinese side launched nine missiles in Taiwan’s direction from the mainland and confirmed that five of them fell into Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), four of which flew over Taiwan’s airspace.
One netizen tweeted: “A bunch of maneuver achievements that did not scare the US (imperialists) nor scare Wanwan (how China affectionately calls Taiwan when it wants to please the Taiwanese people and call them back to the “motherland”), but harvested a lot of seafood….,” accompanied by a video showing a beach full of dead fish in a certain locality in Taiwan.
Sound of Hope quoted netizens mocking, “Pelosi left and the Chinese army started fishing with rockets. Unexpectedly, many fish died, dead fish piled up on the beach.”
Another beach in Taiwan was also littered with dead fish. (Video)
