AFP said in a report released that their reporters were in Pingtan, Fujian. Several small ballistic weapons were seen firing into the sky, followed by white smoke and a loud roar.
The reason why Pingtan has become the focus of the outside world is because it is the narrowest point of the Taiwan Strait, and the closest point to Nanliao, Hsinchu, Taiwan, is only 68 nautical miles, roughly equivalent to 126 kilometers, with a north-south length of about 68 nautical miles. The average width of the 370-kilometer strait is 180 kilometers. The widest point is Eluanbi in Pingtung County and the Aojiao of Dongshan Island in Fujian Province, with a straight-line distance of 410 kilometers.

The route between Taipei Port and Pingtan is about 92 nautical miles and the flight time is 3 hours.

The Xiamen-Jinmen Sea-Crossing Bridge is planned to realize the cross-strait land connection between Xiamen and Kinmen, which is full of expectations.
At the beginning of this year, as the province closest to Taiwan from the mainland, and also a pilot area for cross-strait exchanges and cooperation, Fujian once said that in 2021, Fujian and Taiwan will continue to expand the path of integration, and Fujian has supplied more than 1,700 water to Kinmen. 10,000 tons, “the Fujian side project of the project of connecting electricity with Jinma started construction”.
It is thanks to Fujian’s water supply that Kinmen can save more local freshwater resources to brew specialty sorghum wine, benefiting drinkers on both sides of the strait.
In addition to Kinmen sorghum wine, it is said that Kinmen also has a special product, that is kitchen knives.
