China puts missiles back on contested South China Sea island as United States pushes allies for bigg

Jun 12 , 2018

China has redeployed missiles it removed last week from a disputed island in the South China Sea amid rising tensions with the United States, satellite images show.




Israeli intelligence firm ImageSat International (ISI) said images taken on Friday indicated that China had returned its surface-to-air missile systems on Woody Island, known in China as Yongxing Island, in the Paracels “exactly to the positions they were”.

ISI released a series of satellite photos on June 3 that suggested the missiles, some of them identified as HQ-9s, had been removed or relocated.
