Chinese official media reported Thursday that the country’s armed forces have conducted the largest military exercise of its kind, moving thousands of troops across the country in an unprecedented show of force.

The drill, which reportedly began Monday, saw over 10,000 marines travel more than 1,240 miles to arrive at army training bases in the Yunnan and Shandong provinces. The personnel traveled by air, water, rail and motor and engaged in combat drills upon arrival at the bases.

The Chinese navy reported that more than 1,000 marines trained Thursday in the southeastern Fujian province that overlooks China’s rival government in Taiwan. Beijing has repeatedly attempted to take back the disputed island by force and President Donald Trump’s signing of a Travel Act with Taiwan on Friday was likely to further upset relations. During Thursday’s military exercises, some of the personnel also reportedly drank cow blood, not unlike some U.S. military practices. (Newsweek)
