China Navy Conducts Combat Drill in the South China Sea
12 July 2016 Current Affairs: The Chinese navy conducted combat drills near its southern island province of Hainan and the Paracel islands in the South China Sea.

The drills come ahead of a July 12 ruling by the Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration on a case brought by the Philippines disputing several of China‘s territory claims in the South China Sea. 

China claims nearly all the South China Sea, but its claims overlap in part with those of Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam.
