Taipei, Taiwan (CNN)Taiwan on Thursday accused China of "bullying" after Beijing sent a total of 24 warplanes into its air defense identification zone (ADIZ), the third-largest incursion in the past two years of heightened tensions between Beijing and Taipei.

The People's Liberation Army (PLA) aircraft, including bombers, fighter jets, anti-submarine planes and airborne early warning and control planes, entered Taiwan's ADIZ in two groups -- one of 19 planes and a second cohort of five jets that came later in the day.

A map released by Taiwan's Defense Ministry showed some Chinese aircraft, including H-6 bombers, flying around the southern part of Taiwan, and angling up to the island's east.

In response, the ministry said radio warnings were issued and air defense missile systems were deployed to monitor the activity.
