U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement regarding reports that American military aircraft and pilots have been targeted by laser attacks in the South China Sea.
“The use of lasers to target American aircraft in the South China Sea is yet another example of China's overt aggression in the region. I hope Secretary Mattis raises these incidents and others in his meetings with President Xi.”
