On CNN TC they claim that these data are reliable, as they are represented directly by military personnel involved in monitoring flight operations in Djibouti.
From the report:
Laser attacks were carried out on American aircraft over the past few weeks. In one of the cases of eye injuries were pilots from the crew of the aircraft C-130.
In other American media, it is said at all that it is almost a question of combat lasers, which “Chinese military personnel intended to shoot down American military aircraft.”
It is known that Washington has already sent a protest to Beijing in connection with the incident in Djibouti.
The Chinese side has not yet commented on these charges officially.
