CHINA – April 18: “Major Military OPERATION . . .”

The Chinese Maritime Safety Administration has announced that the People’s Liberation Army Navy will be conducting a “Major Military Operation” in the Yellow Sea off the Coast of Qingdao on April 18th between 0900 and 1200 Local-Time.

This is the first time they have ever used the term “Major Military OPERATION.”   Usually, they say “military exercise(s)”   Now, they’re saying “operation.”

Not quite certain what this entails.  ALso not certain why they gave less than 24 hours notice.   That part of China is about 12 hours AHEAD of US East Coast.

It is interesting to note Qingdao’s location versus Seoul, South Korea . . . .map below
