Philippine Civilian Convoy Asserts Sovereignty in South China Sea Dispute

A civilian convoy comprising Filipino activists, fishermen, and volunteers sailed towards Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea to assert the Philippines' sovereignty over the disputed territory. Escorted by the Philippine Navy and Coast Guard, the convoy aimed to peacefully assert territorial rights following recent tensions with China, including water cannon incidents.

China, in response, deployed ships to block the protest flotilla, emphasizing the escalating tensions in the region. The Philippines also reinforced its stance by deploying a warship to counter alleged Chinese activities, in collaboration with the United States for enhanced surveillance.
