China has fired flares to repel Philippine patrol ships in the West Philippine Sea on at least five instances in June, the military’s Western Mindanao Command said Friday. WestMinCom’s Lt. Col. Bill Pasia, in an online briefing, said the Philippine vessels were conducting Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) patrols. “China uses pyrotechnic signals or flare warnings to ward off our ISR teams. In 2021 alone, a total of five flare warning signals were reported by our ISR teams,” Pasia said.
