After a Chinese spy balloon that got shot down was spotted roaming in American airspace, another spy balloon was also seen floating over Latin America. Now a third Chinese spy balloon has been spotted.   

According to a report by The Washington Post, U.S. authorities have witnessed the appearance of a Chinese spy balloon for the third time, though the location is still not known.

The report stated:

“The discovery of this military spy balloon and others — the presence of a second craft loitering over Latin America was disclosed on Friday, and officials say there is likely a third operating elsewhere — is highly embarrassing to the Chinese.” 

An official from Pentagon stated that the balloon spy story had offended China, and he stated 

China is enraged with the Biden administration over the shooting of its balloon that entered U.S. airspace. 

According to the report by The New York Post, China is forcefully claiming that the balloon was “civilian,” which the United States is labeling as a spy balloon, and stated that it could “respond further.” 

China stated to The Post: 

“In these circumstances, for the United States to insist on using armed force is clearly an excessive reaction that seriously violates international convention. China will resolutely defend the legitimate rights and interests of the enterprise involved and retains the right to respond further.”

The Department of Defence publicized the shooting of a spy balloon on its website.

They stated:

“President Joe Biden ordered the action on Wednesday, but it was delayed until the balloon was over water off the coast of South Carolina to ensure no Americans on the ground were harmed.” 

Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III stated:

“The balloon, which was being used by the PRC in an attempt to surveil strategic sites in the continental United States, was brought down above U.S. territorial waters.”
