VIDEOS have emerged of military vehicles and equipment, including DF-16 ballistic missiles, driving on the beaches and roads of the Fujian province. Fujian and Taiwan are separated by the narrow Taiwan Strait.

Following increasing tensions between China and Taiwan, which were seemingly reignited by the US’ visit to Taiwan and the “Get ready for war!” message posted by China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) 80th Group, China’s military has been spotted rolling into Fujian on Tuesday, August 2.

Videos show tanks and military vehicles from China driving across a Fujian beach while people are trying to enjoy the sand and sea.

“Chinese beaches in Fujian province now,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Another person wrote: “Military equipment of the Chinese army spotted on the beaches of Fujian province.”

After rolling across the beach, the Type 63A amphibious tanks were seen driving across Fujian, days after China’s air force conducted patrols of Taiwan.

“Type 63A amphibious tanks, they get used to lead amphibious assaults on beaches now being seen across Fujian,” one person said.

“In Fujian right now,” another wrote.

One person said: “China in the dock area of Fujian province for loading of its military equipment… There is a high rise of the PLA army’s movement in Fujian province.”

There are also reports that ballistic missiles are in Fujian after further pictures emerged ahead of Pelosi heads to visit Taiwan amid tensions with China.

“Chinese DF-16 ballistic missiles spotted in the Fujian Province!” another Twitter user wrote.

More videos showing China’s military transporting the DF-16 ballistic missiles have continued to circulate on social media.

Another user on Twitter wrote: “China sent DF-16 ballistic missile launchers to Fujian Such missiles can carry nuclear warheads. Firing range – from 800 to 1000 km.”

The news that China’s army has rolled into the Fujian Province comes after China’s People’s Liberation Army posted a threatening video on WeChat ahead of the US visit to Taiwan on Monday, August 1.
