China Redeploys Missile Launchers in Contested South China Sea Amid Rising Tensions With U.S.

NewsweekJune 11, 2011

Beijing has reportedly redeployed missile launchers on a disputed island in the South China Sea only one week after they seemingly removed them amid rising tensions with the U.S.

On June 3, satellite images taken by ImageSat International (ISI), an Israeli intelligence firm, found that China’s surface-to-air missile systems on Woody Island—known in Beijing as Yongxing Island—had been removed or relocated. The photos taken of the scene showed bare sand where numerous large weapons used to sit.
