China’s ‘island fortresses’: Surveillance photos show military installations across the South China Sea

Daily Mail | Feb. 7, 2018

Beijing’s militarisation of the South China Sea has been revealed in new aerial photos obtained by a newspaper in the Philippines.

In what the news organisation described as an ‘unrestrained’ show of power China has apparently transformed seven reefs in the Spratly islands into military island fortresses featuring runways and observation towers.

The dramatic military build-up is shown in pictures taken from a height of 1,500m (4,920 feet) in the last six months of 2017, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
