10/15 (Thurs) – China accuses US of “ceaseless provocations” in S. China Sea, threatens use of force to stop Navy ships from breaching 12mi exclusion zone of disputed islands.

What You Need To Know

On Wednesday of this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding new warnings from China over aplanned U.S. “freedom of navigation ” mission to skirt artificial islands Beijing has constructed in the South China Sea. Writing in the Global Times, a publication that is effective run by the Chinese communist party, Rear Admiral Yang Yi of the People’s Liberation Army Navy stated that China would deliver a “head-on blow” to any foreign forces “violating” China’s sovereignty and “Safeguarding maritime rights calls for force and power.”

According to Chief of Naval Operation Admiral John Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations, “It should not be a surprise to anybody that we would exercise freedom of navigation through wherever international law will allow.”

Last week, China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying also warned against any such patrols, saying, “We will never allow any country to violate China’s territorial waters and airspace in the Spratly Islands, in the name of protecting freedom of navigation and over flight.”

Readers are reminded that in Summer of 2012 China claimed roughly 75% of the entire S. China Sea as their territorial waters, cutting into historical claims by Taiwan, the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam. Since that time, they have been employing a tactic of slow, but ongoing development, including dredging and reclamation efforts on several islands, the building of military facilities, the drilling of exploratory oil and gas wells within the territorial waters of several countries, and more.

Readers may also recall that in November 2013, China declared an air defense identification zone over most of the disputed East China Sea, enraging Japan. Chinese authorities began enforcing ADIZ using military aircraft, requiring all aircraft flying through the area identify themselves. While commercial airlines have complied, U.S. and Japanese military aircraft have not.

This past March, China publicly stated they may take a similar step in the S. China sea if they perceived a great enough threat.

As previously reported by AlertsUSA Threat journal on multiple occasions over the past several years, China’s efforts at seizing control of the waters and airspace of a large chunk of the China Sea region is not only due to the rich fishing grounds and sizeable untapped reserves of oil and natural gas in the area, but also because the country is now deploying nuclear armed ballistic missile submarines and aircraft carriers from bases on Hainan Island as well as the mainland coast. As such, operational buffer space is needed.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor ongoing developments in this region and will immediately notify service subscribers of changes in the overall threat picture as events warrant.

Islamic State Spokesman Calls

On October 13, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

10/13 (Tues) – ISIS spokesman al-Adnani releases new threatening audio msg targeting the US. Prev msgs of this kind have been followed by actual attacks. AlertsUSA monitoring.

What You Need To Know
On Tuesday, subscribers were notified of a new audio message from ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani within which he calls on Muslim youth world-wide to launch a “Holy War” against US and Russia in retaliation for their “crusader’s war” on Muslims in Syria. Quoting Adnani, “Islamic youth everywhere, ignite jihad against the Russians and the Americans in their crusaders’ war against Muslims.”

AlertsUSA again cautions readers that in the days and weeks following previous Islamic State messages calling for faithful Muslims in the West to carry out attacks, such attacks have in fact taken place. The first such call was in Sept of 2014 when ISIS released a video within which Adnani, called for attacks on both soldiers and civilians in Australia, France, Canada and the US. Since that and subsequent videos, the world has in fact seen attacks on soldiers, civilians and government buildings in Canada (see this and this ), a hostage siege in a coffee shop in Australia, multiple attacks by Muslims on police here in the U.S. (see this and this ) and multiple attacks in and around Paris, France (see this, this and this).

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.
