Taiwanese social media is abuzz with claims that China’s Sukhoi Su-35 fighter plane was shot down by the country’s air defense system.

According to a report by The Jewish Press the plane crashed in Guangxi, an autonomous coastal region in southern China, bordering Vietnam, after intruding into the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea.

Multiple videos circulating on social media show a jet engulfed in thick smoke. The video is from an unknown location.

However, many users have flagged the report calling it false while some said that the fighter jet crashed due to technical glitch.

Nicola Smith, Asia correspondent at The Daily Telegraph rejected the report saying Taiwan’s ministry of defense has responded categorically that this is fake news.
